Summary
"On the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower landing and the establishment of Plymouth Plantation, Carla Gardina Pestana offers an intimate look at life in the settlement. Hardly the isolated outpost of myth, in Pestana's telling Plymouth is revealed as a vibrant place of meeting, with strong connections to the seventeenth-century colonial world"-- Provided by publisher.
