Incredible! May 20, 2009
This was a great book! Philbrick did a phenomenal job in presenting the story of the Mayflower settlers. I learned things I did not know. I hadn't actually realized how difficult it had been for them to settle and survive, especially that first year. This is an absolutely riveting essay of those first hard years and obstacles those first pilgrims had to face. Definitely recommend this to anyone interested in the historical facts about those incredibly courageous first settlers.
