'Living history at its best. Engaging and enthralling.' The Times 'Philbrick spins a fascinating and richly complex tale. A champion sailor himself, he excels at seafaring scenes! "Mayflower" is an earnest, engaging and spirited work.' Sunday Telegraph 'Brilliantly constructed. This is more than a small, forgotten war in the first days of America's development. It is a case study in folly, fear and ignorance!enthralling.' Observer 'A sweeping narrative history.' Financial Times 'Philbrick eloquently tackles the contradictions of the settlers' behaviour!excellently researched!offers a sober corrective to the glorified version of an inglorious history.' New Statesman 'Philbrick's account brings the Plymouth Colony and its leaders, including William Bradford, Benjamin Church and the bellicose, dwarfish Miles Standish, vividly to life. More importantly, he brings into focus a gruesome period in early American history. For Philbrick, this is yet another award-worthy story of survival.' Publishers Weekly
