Summary

They were poor exiles, having lived in a foreign land for a dozen years. Through those years, their faith had sustained them in a common bond. But the members of the Leyden congregation of Separatists were ready to leave Holland and make a new place for themselves in the New World. The year was 1620, and under the leadership of two of their elders, William Bradford and William Brewster, this small band of brothers and sisters made preparations to return to their native England. There they were to board an old, creaking wine vessel called the Mayflower and set sail across the dark waters of the Atlantic on a pilgrimage whose end they could not imagine. Plymouth is the story of how this group of brave individuals made a new life for themselves in North America. It details how they faced hardships that would put their lives and faith to the ultimate test, yet it also describes the remarkable opportunities that this new land presented to them.
