Description

The First Year at Plymouth combines the original Mourt’s Relation, published in 1622, with helpful additional info provided in 1963 by Dwight B. Heath. It is further annotated by Nicki Truesdell with Knowledge Keepers Bookstore. It has been divided into sections with introductory information, and includes a commentary on how the Plymouth Colony was influenced by the invention of the printing press and the Protestant Reformation, as well as how Puritan ideals came to be cemented in the American fabric. As a bonus, reader will find a complete transcription of Robert Cushman’s sermon, “The Dangers of Self Love,” which illustrates the Puritan ethic beautifully.

Mourt’s Relation: A Journal of the Pilgrims at Plymouth is one of the most important and useful primary sources of American history. In this journal, written by Edward Winslow and William Bradford, we are treated to a one-year diary of life in the Plymouth Colony. Written between November 1620 and November 1621, details about the Mayflower Compact, the search for a location, relations with Indians, friendship with Squanto, building the town, and many more adventures are included.
