The Mayflower generation : the Winslow family and the fight for the new world
Fraser, Rebecca J., 1978-2017
Articles
Edward Winslow, an apprentice printer born in Worcestershire, fled England and then Holland for a life of religious freedom and opportunity. Despite the intense physical trials of settlement he found America exotic, enticing and endlessly interesting. But the story did not end with the Pilgrims' treacherous transatlantic journey or their first uncertain years on the Massachusetts coast. All settlers had to become linguists, traders and explorers, and yet not forget their roots and customs from the old country. With the aid of exciting contemporary documents Rebecca Fraser brings to life the adventures of an ordinary family, the Winslows, made less ordinary by their responses to the challenges of the New World.
