William Bradford’s journal, written between 1620 and 1647, tells the complete story of the pilgrims from their own perspective. From their initial settling in the Netherlands through 1647 (as well as an additional list of what happened to the initial passengers), our understanding of who the pilgrims really were is largely based upon this classic work. (description taken from Christian Book)

Written over a period of years by the leader of the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts, William Bradford, Of Plymouth Plantation is the single most complete authority for the story of the Pilgrims and the early years of the Colony they founded. Written between 1620 and 1647, the journal describes the story of the Pilgrims from 1608, when they settled in the Netherlands through the 1620 Mayflower voyage, until the year 1647. The book ends with a list, written in 1650, of Mayflower passengers and what happened to them.
