Factual history of the Pilgrim's decision to come to America, their voyage and life during the first twelve months in Plymouth. Gave me a new respect for the extreme hardships of that first winter and the critical importance that strong, positive and mutually-beneficial Indian relationships played in the Pilgrims' survival. A story of unbelievable courage, bravery, trust and belief in their God and their fellow travelers. Every school should adopt this as required reading during their study of American History. A short, well written, easy to read/understand, factual report of what happened and why...exciting, inspiring and filled with timeless lessons as applicable today as they were 400 years ago. Really enjoyed this book and can easily see myself rereading it...which is something I almost never do.
