Interesting.
Journal entries of governor William Bradford from England to Netherlands to New England. The majority of the book is the financial fiascoes that plagued them most of the time. Besides the huge part of the book that makes up the evidence against those who misused them as a otter pelt plantation, etc. the book is soaked in incredible observations, historical memorabilia, and devotional puritanism.
For Instance, 1. They first decided to settle in South America - Guyana, then Virginia, and finally (nearly) by chance in a place newly dubbed, New England 2. After several years of hardship William Bradford decided to give up on Communism and again instituted a bit of Private Property... it was the first time they had bounty in the colony, and they never went back.
