Commemorated each year at Thanksgiving, no chapter in American history has been more clouded in myth, legend and venerable cliché than the story of the Pilgrims. And yet the real story behind their historic voyage--who they were and where they came from; their harrowing first years in America and crucial interactions with Native Americans; and how and why we have come to remember them as we do--is a tale far more haunting and poignant than the one we think we know. From award-winning director Ric Burns, and with a moving final performance by Roger Rees as William Bradford, The Pilgrims explores the riveting true story of a small group of English Separatists whose determination to worship God as they saw fit planted the seeds of the American dream.--,Back of container.
