The drama, adventure, and humor of day-to-day experience abound in this living history of what it felt like to come to America in the fall of 1620. The Mayflower's passengers arrive in the New World, explore the Cape Cod shore for a place to build homes, tentatively encounter Native Americans for the first time, and thrill at the abundance of the land. They struggle through their first long, hard winter and, by spring of 1621, build their settlement at Plymouth.
Originally printed in 1622 under the title A Relation or Journal of the English Plantation settled at Plymouth, this is the first published account of the coming of the Pilgrims to the New World to settle Plymouth Plantation.
