The Mayflower: The Families, the Voyage, and the Founding of America characters è eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB 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 to the Pilgrims’ story― to American identity and character―than our Thanksgiving rituals and reveries” ― Wall Street JournalThe voyage of the Mayflower and the founding of Plymouth Colony is one of the seminal events in world history But the poorly euipped group of English Puritans who ventured across the Atlantic in the early autumn of 1620 had no sense they would pass into. It takes some time to sort through and digest the wealth of information found in The Mayflower The story tends to jump around making it difficult to tie events together and so many names are introduced that it becomes hard to understand their relationship to each other The writing style often makes you feel like you are reading historical fiction which in my opinion is not all bad for such a heavy subject A time line to follow would be helpful along with a chart of the many people involved and their relationship to each other

The Mayflower: The Families, the Voyage, and the Founding of America characters è eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB 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 e. As a member of the Mayflower Society I was absolutely enthralled with this well written and interesting book by acclaimed British historian Rebecca Fraser Unlike most books about the Pilgrims this book begins with the Separatist movement and continues past Plymouth Colony to King Philipp s War so it gives the whole perspective of the Pilgrims journey in the New World I learned a great deal about the Pilgrims from reading this book that I hadn t previously known It s also a wonderful and fascinating read I ve read it twice and I m sure I ll read it again I can t recommend this book highly enough

The Mayflower: The Families, the Voyage, and the Founding of America characters è eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Nticing 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 Americ. This is a terrific book that skillfully weaves family history with the story of the Plymouth Colony particularly early relations with the native population and ultimately the conflicts and war that followed I especially appreciated the backdrop of English history that provides the context for the Puritan migration relations with investors the Crown and the Massachusetts Bay Colony The chapters on London in 1646 and Republican England help put this story in context and have been mostly left out of other histories of New England Fraser develops a compelling narrative using first hand accounts probate records and a wide variety of other sources The reader get new insights into how first and second generation Pilgrims and Indians lived beside and with each other and how early good relations deteriorated I couldn t put it down We need work like this
