Description

National Book Award-winning historian and, New York Times best-selling author Nathaniel Philbrick delivers a fresh, riveting narrative of Pilgrims and Indians struggling for peaceful co-existence. When Dutch urban life weakens their family life, English Separatists, follow God's leading and bravely cross the Atlantic. But after violent storms carry them far north of Hudson's River, they fight icy New England winds to build crude shelters. When half die of starvation and cold that winter, the weakened survivors are not ready for the specter of Indian attack.

Professional reviews

"Penguin Audio could not have chosen a better narrator for MAYFLOWER than the consummate actor Edward Herrmann, one of Audiofile's Golden Voices. It seems like Herrmann was born to play an aristocratic, dapper New Englander as far back as 1973's Paper Chase and as recently as last week's "Gilmore Girls." His forceful, eloquent voice conjures up rough seas and misty New England mornings, and the twinge of sadness in his tone seems more than appropriate. The book is worthy of the performer, a scalding tale of the voyage of the MAYFLOWER and the first half-century of life in the Plymouth colony. It's a very sad book, an unvarnished account of ambition, greed, and violence with not enough bravery, honesty, or loyalty. This is the history they don't teach in school. It's a troubling lesson you will not forget. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
