The Mayflower Pilgrims
In Mayflower Pilgrims Derek Wilson strips away the over-painting from the icon in order to discover who the Pilgrim ‘Fathers’ (a term not invented until 1840) were, and to explain them against the background of the age in which they lived. He does this by exploring a series of probing questions, each of which narrows the focus until the travellers on the storm-tossed Mayflower stand before us clearly delineated.
