Mayflower landing May 5 2008
By Lee Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A refreshing look at the Mayflower landing takes the shape of the voyage itself from the perspective of a sailor. The author was a sailor and describes the ship, the navigation and the voyage from the first sighting of land to the final anchoring in Massachusetts Bay. The book is very well researched.
