"Kevin Jackson's 'Mayflower - the voyage from hell' is a timely and absorbing account of the three thousand mile, sixty-five day voyage through storms and headwinds of a small converted cargo ship which landed, much further north than intended, on November 9th 1620, in Plymouth Harbour, Cape Cod. There are countless myths about the voyage - and Jackson's balanced narrative steers a well-researched course through fact and fable, taking us safely to the arrival of the intrepid Saints and Strangers in New England. All in all, this is a genial companion to the four-hundredth anniversary..."
