really liked it

very interesting, new, and brutal look at like in Plimoth Colony and the years to come. striking thing to me was how ill-prepared the colonists were, and as a result, how difficult their experience was. also very interesting light shone on the Indians motivations and the political realities that allowed the colonists to gain a foothold, early allies, and then eventually the brutal war that was the beginning of the end for the Indian nations.

Nathaniel P makes history more interesting than fiction.
