Who were the Pilgrims? Far from somberly clad, stern, and righteous figures children learn about in school, many of the early settlers of Plymouth actually dressed in bright colors, drank heavily, and often got into trouble. A surprising new look at America's founding fathers and mothers, The Times of Their Lives presents a realistic, factual account of the Plymouth colony based on contemporary archeology; cultural research; and living history. Taking little known trial transcripts, personal accounts, wills, and probate records, as well as physical artifacts such as shards and spoons unearthed from old foundations, the authors reveal what life in seventeenth-century Plymouth was really like, and in the process they blow the dust of the dull, wooden figures of tradition and show the Plymouth colonists as vibrant people who lived out complex and colorful lives in a world profoundly different from our own. 366 pages, including sources and notes, and an index. Illustrations included throughout. Binding is half cloth. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
