Nick Bunker worked as an investigative reporter for the Liverpool Echo, and for six years he wrote for the Financial Times. While at Columbia he began his travels around the United States. For many years, he served as a board member, treasurer and Chairman of the Trustees of the Freud Museum in London.
He now lives in Lincoln, near the villages from which the leaders of the Plymouth Colony came. At the end of , a blazing green star soared across the night sky over the Northern Hemisphere. From the Philippines to the Great Lakes, the comet became a sensation and a symbol, a warning of doom or a promise of salvation.
Two years later, as the Pilgrims prepared to sail across the Atlantic on board the Mayflower, the atmosphere remained charged with fear and expectation. Men and women readied themselves for war, pestilence or divine retribution.
Making Haste from Babylon : The Mayflower Pilgrims and Their World: A New History
Against this background, and amid deep economic depression, the Pilgrims conceived their enterprise of exile. Within a decade, despite crisis and catastrophe, they built a thriving settlement at New Plymouth, based on beaver fur, corn and cattle. In doing so, they laid the foundations for Massachusetts, New England and a new nation. Using a wealth of new evidence - from landscape, archaeology and hundreds of overlooked or neglected documents - Nick Bunker gives a vivid and strikingly original account of the Mayflower project and the first decade of the Plymouth Colony.
From mercantile London and the rural England of Queen Elizabeth and King James to the mountains and rivers of Maine, he weaves a rich narrative which combines religion, politics, money, science and the sea.
The Pilgrims were entrepreneurs as well as evangelicals, political radicals as well as Christian idealists. Read more Read less. Review "An imaginative and archivally rich evocation of the Mayflower pilgrims and of the lands they invaded" -- Linda Colley "In this beautifully written and imagined book, impeccably researched, and full of so many fresh insights and discoveries, Nick Bunker has given us the most grounded and convincing portrait yet achieved of what drove the Pilgrim Fathers to seek their faith and fortune in the New World" -- Michael Wood "I have rarely read a book which combines such a breadth of canvas Hall, Harvard University "His spirit, zeal and flair put most historians of his subject to shame'" -- Felipe Fernandez-Armesto Times About the Author Nick Bunker worked as an investigative reporter for the Liverpool Echo, and for six years he wrote for the Financial Times.
