Reviews - What do customers think about Mayflower: The Voyage that Changed the World?

Very accurate and delightful book  Sep 15, 2008
I have read many books on the subject of American foundations, especially the Pilgrim story. I found this book, written by British authors, to be very accurate and not the usual attempt at revising American history through pilgrim-bashing opinion and not based on the actual facts. This book is researched with primary source documentation and not current day heresy.
Young-Adult history of Pilgrim journey  Jun 10, 2008
Young-people's level history of the Pilgrim Separatists, their flight from England to the Netherlands then to Plymouth Colony, and their struggle to survive in the New World.
Storytelling filled with stereotypes and inaccuracies  Jan 24, 2007
So with that review title that I have used, how can this book not be rated as "Poor"? Simple: it is an entertaining and engaging narrative that will capture your attention while you breeze through it in a number of days (if not less). As a simple, scratch-the-surface introduction to the plight of the Scrooby Separatists, this work succeeds. That being said, this book is best viewed as a junior-high level introductory work. The reading is simple, the text and storytelling flowing, but the depth and accuracy of the information is questionable at best.

Without nitpicking or going into tremendous detail on the shortcomings of this work, I will offer up these few items as examples so that the reader of this review might realize that I am not out to unneccessarily disparage the author's work: 1.) signers of the Mayflower Compact; 2.)the death of Dorothy Bradford; 3.) the style of homes built in Plymouth; 4.) the circumstances of the first "Thanksgiving"; 5.) the illustrations. Even the casual scholar of the Plymouth "pilgrims" will see the glaring inaccuracies, contradictions, and misinterpretations regarding these 5 items (as well as the age-old stereotypes they perpetuate) that are found throughout the entire work.

Overall, it's a "good try" by the author, but certainly not a "must read" for any serious student of the Old Colony or its founders.
