November Reading

When November rolls around each year I like to read books about Colonial America. Especially those about Plymouth Colony and the colonies around it.

Of course November is when we celebrate the Thanksgiving feast that was held there about 400 years ago. Was that first feast in 1621 or 1623? That of course is still hotly debated.

Mayflower, rebecca fraser, plymouth colonyThis year I am rereading The Mayflower: The Families, the Voyage, and the Founding of America by Rebecca Fraser. I really enjoyed this book when I read it back in early 2018.

Mayflower - Nathaniel Philbrick - A Story of Courage, Community, and War - PIlgrims - Mayflower - Plymouth - ThanksgivingI may also read sections out of Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War by Nathaniel Philbrick. I just finished another book by Philbrick and it reminded me of some of what he wrote in this book.

plymouth, mayflower, colonialThey Knew they were Pilgrims: Plymouth Colony and the Quest for American Liberty by John G. Turner is another book that I may read sections of. This book was published just last year so has some newer information about the passengers.

Pilgrim Migration, Mayflower biographical information, 400 years since mayflowerWhile reading the books I will have close by The Mayflower Migration:  Immigrants to Plymouth. 1620 by Robert Charles Anderson. This will give me background on the different passengers that are talked about in the books.
