An engrossing read, Pilgrim is the first complete story of the life of William Brewster. He grew up in the Golden Age of Elizabethan England and tasted the thrills and perils of life in Court. Then, abruptly, his employer, Secretary Davison, was imprisoned in the Tower of London, and Willaim Brewster's life changed forever. He found new purpose in a movement that revived values of the first christians and defied State religion. He played a leading role in planning the group's escape to the Netherlands. Finally, he led the great adventure of the Mayflower voyage. For more than 20 years, he helped build the colony of Plymouth.Pilgrim is the story of one man's life. It is also the story of the world that he knew--a world of physical danger, radical social change and adventures of the human spirit.
