The Mayflower Pilgrims : Sifting Fact from Fable, Hardback Book

The Mayflower Pilgrims : Sifting Fact from Fable Hardback



'Compelling reading' - Alison Weir'A fresh and admirably unsentimental account' - Peter MarshallThe voyage of the Mayflower in 1620 has come to typify those qualities that many believe represent the best of America and the values it holds up to the rest of the world. And yet, if they lived today, the courageous men, women and children who made that journey would not recognize themselves in the romantic retelling of their story in popular books and movies of the last century or so. So what were the motivating forces behind this momentous voyage?

Derek Wilson strips away the over-painting from the icon to discover the complex range of religious, political and commercial concerns that led this group of hopeful but fallible human beings to seek a new life on the other side of the world.
