The Story of Britain: From the Romans to the Present: A Narrative History

The Story of Britain: From the Romans to the Present: A Narrative History

Author: Rebecca Fraser Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: 01/07/2021

'A reference book that will see every history student through school and university' (Lucy Moore, New Statesman) Despite suffering at the hands of invading Romans, Anglo-Saxons, and Normans, and tyrannical kings and queens, Britons have been renowned since Queen Boudicca for their fierce commitment to the liberty of the individual. Britain's seven-hundred-year-old parliamentary democracy has developed from a passion for fairness and the rule of law. In an atmospheric and vivid narrative Rebecca Fraser takes listeners through key events in the nation's history, from Alfred and the Danes to the Norman Conquest, from Magna Carta to the founding of English America, from the Industrial Revolution and the Empire to the Commonwealth today. The listener is introduced to the lives of the far-sighted statesmen and women, heroes and villains, scientists, soldiers, and great explorers, whose ideas have informed the colorful tapestry which is the story of Britain.

The Mayflower: The Families, the Voyage, and the Founding of America

The Mayflower: The Families, the Voyage, and the Founding of America

Author: Rebecca Fraser Narrator: Kate Reading Release Date: 01/11/2017

From acclaimed historian and biographer Rebecca Fraser comes a vivid narrative history of the Mayflower and of the Winslow family, who traveled to America in search of a new world. The voyage of the Mayflower and the founding of Plymouth Colony is one of the seminal events in world history. But the poorly-equipped group of English Puritans who ventured across the Atlantic in the early autumn of 1620 had no sense they would pass into legend. They had eighty casks of butter and two dogs but no cattle for milk, meat, or ploughing. They were ill-prepared for the brutal journey and the new land that few of them could comprehend. But the Mayflower story did not end with these Pilgrims' arrival on the coast of New England or their first uncertain years as settlers. Rebecca Fraser traces two generations of one ordinary family and their extraordinary response to the challenges of life in America. Edward Winslow, an apprentice printer, fled England and then Holland for a life of religious freedom and opportunity. Despite the intense physical trials of settlement, he found America exotic, enticing, and endlessly interesting. He built a home and a family, and his remarkable friendship with King Massassoit, Chief of the Wampanoags, is part of the legend of Thanksgiving. Yet, fifty years later, Edward's son Josiah was commanding the New England militias against Massassoit's son in King Philip's War. The Mayflower is an intensely human portrait of the Winslow family written with the pace of an epic. Rebecca Fraser details domestic life in the seventeenth century, the histories of brave and vocal Puritan women and the contradictions between generations as fathers and sons made the painful decisions which determined their future in America.
