Abstract:

Though just 200 words, the Mayflower Compact had a profound impact on the lives of a small group of settlers and the colony they would establish. This historic document kept a struggling group of Pilgrims together during a difficult time in their journey from England to the founding of Plymouth in 1620. Readers will learn what this document said, why it's considered to be so important, and about questions surrounding its intent. Images of the events throughout the book help illustrate and highlight the trials and triumphs of the Pilgrims.
