HASH(0x90edfc24) out of 5 stars The Complete Story 29 Aug. 2005
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The story of the Mayflower and the voyage of the pilgrams to the new world has been told many times, but usually only in the shortest of ways. In this book Mr. Hilton has carefully researched the pilgrims, their travels and activities once they reached America. He tells the tale with knowledge, respect and a writing style that really leaves you wondering if they will survive the next problem.

Beyond the basic history, he provides some very interesting commentary on the long term effects of the document they all signed, the Mayflower Compact. He traces the sentiments, even some of the wording in the compact to the constitutions of other states, even to the United States Constitution. This was an aspect that I had never seen before.

There is some puzzlement with why they landed in Massachusetts. One document that I have heard of says that it was because they were out of beer on board. The brewing process kills all pathogens in dirty water. This is one way to clean the water for a sea voyage. I have no idea if this is true, but it's a very good story.

HASH(0x90d3cdec) out of 5 stars The story they don't teach us in school here in America 16 Jun. 2015
By D. Corbishley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I should say I know the author from working with him on another book and we talked about this one day at lunch in London. At school we are taught about the Pilgrims coming to what is now America but like most things we don't get the accurate store. They didn't come here for religious freedom, they already had it in Holland, they didn't want to mix with their Dutch neighbors. So they moved to where they could keep their group intact without mixing with those outside the group.

Good job Christopher!
