    On this Thanksgiving Season in 2017, it is easy to think back to the American Pilgrims, Plymouth Rock, The Mayflower, and the first Thanksgiving (which really wasn?t the first?Thanksgiving started in the southern colonies). The pleasant features of the story are ingrained into our ...

    I received this book through Goodreads Giveaway Program. Thank you! As a history book, it is a slow read. Your mind MUST be on what you are reading and nothing else. It gave the Pilgrims personalities. I felt like they were finally people and not just a group that did everything in one...

    Did not finish. Read about two-thirds of the book. This is a history book, but it's history through the lens of Edward Winslow's life. I generally enjoyed the earlier section of the book which detailed the struggle of the Puritans during the early days of the Plymouth colony. But there...

    This is an exceedingly interesting and engagingly written book. I was hesitant to purchase it because I thought it might be slightly fawning, as other books about the Mayflower families were. It is decidedly not fawning. The author makes clear the forces acting on each person were hist...

    The content was quite interesting, but honestly, her writing made it SO difficult to read! I don't think there was a single page where I did not see typos or an awkwardly worded sentence. Or a sentence that just did not make sense. ...

    The Mayflower aims to tell the story of the families, focusing on the Winslows, that fled to America and founded Plymouth. That?s what the subtitle says (?The Families, the Voyage and the Founding of America?). cover122138-mediumAnd that?s what Rebecca Fraser does for the first...

    A different perspective, but marred My own take was that this was probably a 3.5 star ... I bumped it down the half-star based on what the two reviewers with relatives of the period said on Amazon. My own take, in brief? 1. Being written as a British take offers something differ...

    The Mayflower: The Families, the Voyage, and the Founding of America by Rebecca Fraser is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late November. Written as a character study within the framework of history, it almost should've been called Plymouth, due to the extent of the timeline be...

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. This book is as much about the New England American Indians as it was about the Pilgrims. The author?s comprehensive research provides an intimate look at their lives as they struggled to survive in the untamed areas of the eastern shore. I le...
