Of Plymouth Plantation: Along with the Full Text of the Pilgrims' Journals for Their First Year at Plymouth
From 1630 to 1651, William Bradford wrote a history of Plymouth, the very colony he helped to establish and govern. Never published in his lifetime, the handwritten manuscript was lost during the Revolutionary War, and was rediscovered and published for the first time in 1856. In this new edition, Caleb Johnson has added many valuable footnotes, and included many relevant photos and illustrations. Also included here with Bradford's History is the complete text of the Pilgrims' journals chronicling the first year at Plymouth. These exciting first-hand journals capture the day-by-day details of the explorations and adventures of the Pilgrims.
