From the perilous ocean crossing to the shared bounty of the first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrim settlement of New England has become enshrined as our most sacred national myth. Yet, as author Philbrick reveals, the true story of the Pilgrims is much more than the well-known tale of piety and sacrifice; it is a 55-year epic. The Mayflower's religious refugees arrived in Plymouth Harbor during a period of crisis for Native Americans, as disease spread by European fishermen devastated their populations. Initially the two groups maintained a fragile working relationship. But within decades, New England erupted into King Philip's War, a savage conflict that nearly wiped out colonists and natives alike, and forever altered the face of the fledgling colonies and the country that would grow from them. Philbrick has fashioned a fresh portrait of the dawn of American history--dominated right from the start by issues of race, violence, and religion.--From publisher description.… (mere)

(2006) Very good history of the Pilgrim movement from Leiden, the Netherlands to England to Massachusetts. Gives the unknown true story of the hardships and how not very nice the Pilgrims were towards the native population and to other English communities in the area.

The story of the Pilgrims and King Philip's War, another fine history by Nathaniel Philbrick, and winner of the National Book Award. The 2019 Folio Society edition is beautifully done and, I think, the first edition with color figures. It is ultimately quite depressing if you expect any story resembling what is taught in grade school, but it can be encouraging if you like having your suspicions confirmed that any story that seems far-fetched probably is.

I enjoyed the first half of this book more than the second. The first, of course, focuses mainly on the Pilgrims'' flight from England/Europe to the New World and their struggles to survive that first frigid winter and year. As the book progresses beyond that first generation, we get into the Indian wars (and alliances) between the various tribes and these new white inhabitants. This began to drag a bit for me in part because of the many characters (both Indian and English) to keep track of in the book.

Still, it was written very well and often compelling. As a student of the American Revolution, it was good to go back 150 years to learn more about how it all began. ( )

Preface

We all want to know how it was in the beginning.
Chapter 1
They Knew They Were Pilgrims

For sixty-five days, the Mayflower had blundered her way through storms and headwinds, her bottom a shaggy pelt of seaweed and barnacles, her leaky decks spewing salt water onto her passengers' devoted heads.
[Epilogue] As early as the fall of 1675, they had begun to sail from the coast of New England: the slave ships.
