Overview

As one of the earliest settlements in the British colonies that became the United States, the Plymouth Colony is considered by many to be the foundation of the modern United States of America. This book tells the remarkable story of a group of people, led by religious exiles, who came to North America in the early 1600s and created a thriving settlement. Life in Plymouth's early days -- when religion and the common good ruled -- is vividly detailed. This volume also explores the relationship between colonists and Native inhabitants of the region and the devastating impact of white settlement on Native lands.
