Great book. I learned not only a lot about Henry Morgan, but also about privateer and pirate origins. If you like European history, this is also a great book and it connects new work and old world issues of the time impressively.
Covers about a century from 1610 forward. The actual "pilgrims" and the initial settlement is only a small to medium part of the book. Much of it focuses on King Philips War between 2nd generation pilgrims and next generation of native american leaders.
Not a bad story, but not nearly as good as Empire of the Blue Water. If you are looking for a pirate tale go elsewhere. If you want to hear about one person's defense of Capt. Kid and long quotes for century old letters, this book is for you.
Kids and parents loved this story, the entertaining details, and the imagination. Great length for a long car ride too.
