Revealing, surprising, exciting,
This review is from: Mayflower: A Voyage to War (Paperback)
Philbrick writes a well-structured book that reveals what it was really like for the Mayflower pioneers. Where it falls short perhaps, is in context. He might have outlined more fully what what was happening in Virginia at the same time as this story was playing out. It reads almost as a blow for blow account but I thought that he didn't spend time enough on the colonization of greater New England in the decades between the Mayflower landing and Philip's War. But hey, a good read.
