    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 best-selling author Nathaniel Philbrick reveals in his spellbinding new book, the true story of the Pilgrims is much more than the well-known tale of piety and sacrifice; it is a 55-year epic that is at once tragic, heroic, exhilarating, and profound.

    John M says: "Fascinating book about a little-understood time"
    "DULL"
    Overall

    This was the most difficult to finish audio book I've ever listened to. The author added no depth to many of the significant events and individuals in the book. It was like, "oh by the way, she was convicted and hung in Boston Common." or, "on the way home, his boat capsized and he drowned in Chesapeake Bay." Then on to some other event. The author repeatedly glossed over interesting stories, and repeatedly lost my attention.

    At the time of the French Revolution, one of Britain's most skillful naval officers, Charles Saunders Hayden, is a young lieutenant, the son of an English father and a French mother. His abilities and his loyalty to the king of England are beyond dispute, yet his career seems doomed by his "mixed" heritage and lack of political connections. Consequently, Hayden is assigned to an aging frigate, the Themis, under the command of Captain Josiah Hart, a man known as "Faint Hart" throughout the service.

    Blackmac says: "Perfect for first timer"
    "great listen"
