Publisher's Summary

A Quest for Freedom

All Americans are familiar with the story of the Pilgrims--persecuted for their religion in the Old World, they crossed the ocean to settle in a wild and dangerous land. But for most of us, the story ends after their brutal first winter at Plymouth, with a supposedly peaceful encounter with the Native Americans and a happy Thanksgiving.

Now, through the vivid memoirs, letters, and personal accounts in The Pilgrim Chronicles, you will discover the full, compelling story of their anguished journey and heroic strength. Award-winning historian Rod Gragg brings the Pilgrims to life in this lavish guide filled with moving eyewitness narratives. From their persecution in England and painful exile in Holland to their voyage across the Atlantic and their struggle to survive among the Indians in an untamed wilderness, Gragg takes you on the harrowing and inspiring journey of a people seeking religious freedom.

    "I loved it!"

    A must read for all Americans. This should be added to our History classes in school.

    "Loved it!"

    Great Book! Was the first time I heard all these written accounts in one place.

    The only thing I didn't like was that I think even though it was indeed important a d was the cause of the Pilgrims voyage to America, the author spent too much of the book talking about pre-pilgrimage England and it's religious turmoil, I would have liked more emphasis on the Colony.

    Story
    "Excellent history instead of myth"

    The book helps to understand the Pilgrims and we hear their words throughout the book. Especially interesting that the colony started as a commune but soon found that private ownership was far more efficient. These were possibly the only Europeans that actually respected the Indians and dealt with them honorably. The Pilgrims are a significant factor in shaping our country. And next Thanksgiving I'm serving lobster!

    Story
    "Won't recommend"

    There was a lot of detail before the pilgrims set sail and not enough detail about the trials they faced in the years after setting up home in America. I read this interested in finding out more about what life was like for the first generation and beyond and it just isn't here.
