Store Description:

This engaging history of the Mayflower adventure ties many ends together. Why did the Pilgrims leave Holland? Who was Samoset? Why did Squanto learn to speak English? Why was Massasoit so friendly and yet his son launched King Philip's War? What happened at "The First Encounter"? How did Eastham come into being? Why does Nauset Light have a red top? What became of the Nausets and the Wampanoag nation?
