Everyone knows the story of the founding of Plymouth Rock, but did you know a rival group of Puritans set off aboard the Mayflower's sister ship the Seaflower to settle in the Carribean? The island colony of Providence was plagued from the beginning with failed crops, slave revolts, smugglers and pirates (PIRATES!) And then, 100 years later, the entire scenario played out once again as another group tried to re-settle the island, lessons unlearned. The old cliche "truth is stranger than fiction" could not be better exemplified in this gripping work of early American history.
