Mayflower

Nathaniel Philbrick
Introduced by Paul Theroux

This lavishly illustrated edition of Mayflower meets you on board a storm-lashed ship filled with resolute Pilgrims and leaves you a generation later in the blood-soaked new American nation.

‘Vivid and remarkably fresh’

  1. New York Times

Nathaniel Philbrick presents the true story behind America’s sacred 400-year-old history, giving equal voice to the immigrant forefathers and the Native Americans. Based on exhaustive research and exhibiting a rare gift for creating a captivating yet scholarly narrative, Philbrick – one of America’s best-known historians – puts right an oft-misrepresented history. Novelist and travel writer Paul Theroux brilliantly introduces what is essentially a two-fold story – the arrival and integration of the Pilgrims, and the colony’s descent into all-out war just a generation later.

Mayflower is one of the best accounts I know of the complexities of settlement and human conflict’
