Discussion Guide for The Mayflower and the Pilgrims' New World

Author Nathaniel Philbrick evokes the drama of the voyage of the Mayflower, the emptiness of coastal Massachusetts that greeted the Pilgrims, and the friendship of the settlers with many powerful Native American leaders. But the promise of the First Thanksgiving was broken with the next generation of leaders when a horrifying conflict (King Philip's war) nearly wiped out the colonists and Natives alike. This discussion guide is a fantastic introduction to the beginning of American History, the tumultuous relationship between the settlers and the Native Americans, and to the meaning behind Thanksgiving.
