SummaryAdd a Summary
These aren't your forefathers' pilgrims. In a riveting account of adventure, espionage, and gritty diplomacy amongst uncertain times, Philbrick draws on a vast amount of sources to provide background and context to the story of the settlers of the Plymouth colony starting in 1620, of the peaceful alliance that was forged with the Pokanoket tribe that inhabited the area near Cape Cod, and of the steady deterioration of that peace throughout the next generation that led to the outbreak of King Philip's War. Drawing much of the story from the personal diaries of William Bradford (Governor of Plymouth colony) and Benjamin Church (the Davy Crockett of his times), Philbrick's history is vibrant with the colorful narrative of its rich characters. For the audiobook, the reader George Guidall adds engaging personality and flawless pronunciation to make time listening to this version time well spent.
