Summary
"Pilgrims uncovers the life histories of the striking number of colonists who left New England during the British Civil Wars and Interregnum, 1640-60. The complex reasons that spurred them to brave the Atlantic again - the allure of revolutionary England, an eye for profit, the workings of Providence, the call of home - show much more was at stake than simply failing to settle. Their stories challenge our perceptions of early colonialism; America was a stage in their journey, not an end in itself." "Drawing on extensive original research into the lives of hundreds of migrants, Susan Hardman Moore explores their motives for setting out from England in the 1630s, their experiences in America, and their fortunes back home. Pilgrims presents a vivid account of the nature and significance of the New England experiment, and offers a fresh vantage point from which to survey the seventeenth-century Atlantic horizon."--BOOK JACKET
