Publisher's Description

A page-turning story of the Pilgrims, the courageous band of freedom-seekers who set out for a new life for themselves and forever changed the course of history.

Once a year at Thanksgiving, we encounter Pilgrims as folksy people in funny hats before promptly forgetting them. In the centuries since America began, the Pilgrims have been relegated to folklore and children’s stories, fairy-tale mascots for holiday parties and greeting cards.

The true story of the Pilgrim Fathers could not be more different. Beginning with the execution of two pastors deviating from the Elizabethan Church of England, the Pilgrims’ great journey was one of courageous faith, daring escape, and tenuous survival. Theirs is the story of refugees who fled intense religious persecution; of dreamers who voyaged the Atlantic and into the unknown when all other attempts had led to near-certain death; of survivors who struggled with newfound freedom. Loneliness led to starvation, tension gave way to war with natives, and suspicion broke the back of the very freedom they endeavored to achieve.

Despite the pain and turmoil of this high stakes triumph, the Pilgrim Fathers built the cornerstone for a nation dedicated to faith, freedom, and thankfulness. This is the epic story of the Pilgrims, an adventure that laid the bedrock for the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, and the American identity.

    The Pilgrims have an amazing history. Their story includes many different points in history and a collection of many different people. And as their story unfolds you can see the hardships they went through, and the amazing blessings they received. Their life coming to America was not easy, and it is an interesting story that should always be remembered.



    Even though this book was nonfiction it was really interesting and had a good story feel. Instead of following one or two characters around it gave more of an overview of the events and people. Which works wonderfully for getting into the story, while still keeping it as historically accurate as possible. But one small problem with this book is that when it starts it jumps around a lot through different people and different events. Giving you a lot of names to sort through and events to place together. If you already know a lot about all of the people and events that lead up to the Pilgrims move to the new world then you should be fine with this book. But if it is not something you know a lot about it can take awhile before the story starts to flow together.





    I received this book free from the publisher, Thomas Nelson, through the BookLook Bloggers book review program. The opinions are my own.

    Engaging history of the Pilgrims

    Much myth surrounds the Pilgrims and what led up to the first Thanksgiving. In his latest title Jay Milbrandt provides an engaging look at the Pilgrims and the events that surrounded them. Well researched and well written this is history that makes that past come alive.

    Throughout this book Milbrandt traces the journeys of both the Pilgrims and Squanto. Milbrandt faithfully records the pressures and persecutions that led the Pilgrims to leave England for Amsterdam and then from Amsterdam to America. One sees in the life of Squanto which in my opinion demonstrate Gods providence. We often romanticize the Pilgrims but Milbrandt demonstrates the harsh realities they faced in the new world. In many ways I am convinced that it was the Pilgrims religious convictions that separated Plymouth colony from all the failed colonies that came before them.

    This book is one I would recommend to anyone who wants to better understand the Pilgrims or earlier colonial America. While sometimes authors add more fiction that history or make history dull this is not the case with this book. Theres plenty of time to read it before Thanksgiving this year so make sure you add it to your reading list.

    Disclosure: I received a review copy of the book from the publisher for the purpose of reviewing it. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
