Synopsis

Miles Standish (Leaders of the Colonial Era) by Davis

As the only person aboard the Mayflower with military experience, Captain Miles Standish led a small militia that would defend the new colonial settlement in Plymouth. Protecting the colony was a task he would perform with amazing success throughout his long career in the New World, though not without controversy. In his confrontations with Native Americans as well as other colonists, Standish earned a reputation for his military leadership as well as for his hot temper. Nearly 400 years after his many adventures, Miles Standish remains a colorful character in the dramatic saga of the Plymouth Plantation. In this new biography, readers will learn about Standish's upbringing and his life in the New World, along with useful research and reference features.
