About the Author

Martyn Whittock is the author of numerous history books, including Mayflower Lives: Pilgrims in a New World and the Early American Experience and Tales of Valhalla: Norse Myths and Legends. He has been a consultant for the BBC, English Heritage, and the National Trust (UK). He lives in Oxford, England.


Whittock [is] an engaging writer. The author's female stories prove especially poignant. Disease. Stories full of faith and struggle lose none of their mythological quality.
Whittock pays homage to the upcoming 400th anniversary of the Mayflower's 1620 voyage. Using as a lens the lives of more than a dozen people associated with the ship, he explores religion, politics, economics, romance and family life, crime, and relations with Native Americans in the Plymouth settlement.-- (05/13/2019)
Whittock's recounting of these seminal lives makes great reading for students of early colonial American history.
It's perhaps not so surprising that such an assemblage of resolute men and women should contain a number of memorable lives, though it is surprising just how much historians have discovered about people who, with only two or three exceptions, remained unknown in their own day. Mr. Whittock has woven their stories together wonderfully.-- (11/26/2019)
