"Vivid and remarkably fresh...Philbrick has recast the Pilgrims for the ages." --The New York Times Book Review Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in history New York Times Book Review Top Ten books of the Year How did America begin? That simple question launches the acclaimed author of Bunker Hill and Valiant Ambition on an extraordinary journey to understand the truth behind our most sacred national myth: the voyage of the Mayflower and the settlement of Plymouth Colony. As Philbrick reveals in this electrifying history of the Pilgrims, the story of Plymouth Colony was a fifty-five year epic that began in peril and ended in war. New England erupted into a bloody conflict that nearly wiped out the English colonists and natives alike. These events shaped the existing communites and the country that would grow from them. From the Trade Paperback edition.

From acclaimed historian and biographer Rebecca Fraser comes a vivid narrative history of the Mayflower and of the Winslow family, who traveled to America in search of a new world. “There is nothing sleep-inducing about the chronicle crafted by Ms. Fraser . . . There is more to the Pilgrims’ story—more to American identity and character—than our Thanksgiving rituals and reveries.” —Wall Street Journal The voyage of the Mayflower and the founding of Plymouth Colony is one of the seminal events in world history. But the poorly-equipped group of English Puritans who ventured across the Atlantic in the early autumn of 1620 had no sense they would pass into legend. They had eighty casks of butter and two dogs but no cattle for milk, meat, or ploughing. They were ill-prepared for the brutal journey and the new land that few of them could comprehend. But the Mayflower story did not end with these Pilgrims’ arrival on the coast of New England or their first uncertain years as settlers. Rebecca Fraser traces two generations of one ordinary family and their extraordinary response to the challenges of life in America. Edward Winslow, an apprentice printer, fled England and then Holland for a life of religious freedom and opportunity. Despite the intense physical trials of settlement, he found America exotic, enticing, and endlessly interesting. He built a home and a family, and his remarkable friendship with King Massassoit, Chief of the Wampanoags, is part of the legend of Thanksgiving. Yet, fifty years later, Edward’s son Josiah was commanding the New England militias against Massassoit’s son in King Philip’s War. The Mayflower is an intensely human portrait of the Winslow family written with the pace of an epic. Rebecca Fraser details domestic life in the seventeenth century, the histories of brave and vocal Puritan women and the contradictions between generations as fathers and sons made the painful decisions which determined their future in America.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Amerika, Note: 1,0, Freie Universität Berlin (Friedrich Meinecke Institut), Veranstaltung: Einführung in die Geschichte Nordamerikas, 31 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Geschichte der ersten Siedler Neu Englands ist in fast jeder Publikation zu finden, das sich mit der Frühgeschichte der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika beschäftigt. Dies liegt zum einen daran, dass die Siedlung der Pilgrims zu den ersten gehört, die sich dauerhaft auf dem nordamerikanischen Kontinent etablieren konnte. Zum anderen wurde die Geschichte der Pilgerväter und ihrer Reise in mehreren sehr anschaulichen Werken überliefert. Bis heute vermischen sich etliche Spekulationen und Tatsachen in den Beschreibungen der Kolonisation Neu Englands und sich widersprechende Aussagen gehören ebenso zu den verschiedenen Ausarbeitungen, wie die immer währende Nennung des Mayflower-Compacts, mal mehr, mal weniger hervorgehoben. In der folgenden Betrachtung soll dieses Abkommen im Vordergrund stehen, insbesondere dessen Entstehungsgeschichte. Dazu soll geklärt werden, wie der Compact überliefert wurde, um dann Inhalt und Aufbau zu betrachten. Schließlich ist die zentrale Frage dieser Arbeit welche Motivation hinter der diesem Vertrags lag und wie diese es ermöglicht den Compact in seiner Bedeutung einzuordnen. Abschließend wird ein Ausblick gewährt, in dem auch die Grenzen dieser Untersuchung und aus der Betrachtung resultierende Fragen aufgeführt werden sollen. Grundlage dieser Arbeit sind Aufzeichnungen der Siedler und Dokumente, die direkten Bezug auf die Besiedlung Nordamerikas nehmen, sowie verschiedene Werke aus der Forschungsliteratur, die am Ende aufgeführt werden. In dieser Literatur lässt sich auch die Geschichte der Besiedlung Neu Englands finden, wie sie jetzt kurz dargestellt werden soll.
