National Book Award winner Nathaniel Philbrick and his father, Thomas Philbrick, present the most significant and readable original works that were used in the writing of Mayflower, offering a definitive look at a crucial era of America’s history. The selections include William Bradford’s “Of Plymouth Plantation” (1651), the most comprehensive of all contemporary accounts of settlement in seventeenth-century America; Benjamin Church’s “Entertaining Passages Relating to Philip’s War 1716,” an eye-opening account from Church’s field notes from battle; and much more. Providing explanatory notes for every piece, the editors have vividly re- created the world of seventeenth-century New England for anyone interested in the early history of our nation.
