This a very good overview of the Pilgrim fathers and their travels to Holland and then on to the New World and above all, the places that figure in the story.

The author explains the reasons for the migration, giving an account of why they felt they had to leave England and then eventually take advantage of the schemes then existing to encourage people to emigrate.

What is especially useful about this book are the maps, showing the main sites relating to the Pilgrims. This covers England, Holland and America. As an example, we live in Shropshire and can relate to the sad tale of the 4 More children from Shipton who were sent on the Mayflower by their father when he discovered he was not actually the father. This story is recalled in the local church, including a plaque and a little booklet and is merely one example of how the author signposts the reader to the places associated with the Pilgrims. One place missing is Newlyn in Cornwall, where there is a plaque by the old harbour stating the belief that it was the last stop in England for the Mayflower: perhaps this is unsubstantiated.

Altogether a great little guide, which can be supplemented by the in-depth tomes available, including how they actually fared when they had settled.

I have only read a few books on this part of English/USA History, but this is a very well written & informative book.
I really did enjoy it.
I am from the north of England, so the details of how the ideas first came about in England, and then the details covering the groups time in Holland was fascinating.
The setting out of the historical facts and the authors take on the events, both pre and post settlement was explained very well.
This is a good book, and I recommend it, In fact it's made me want to visit Plymouth and see for myself just what it's like now, and maybe just catch a glimpse of what it was like in 1620-1630
