The colony founded by the Pilgrims that formed Plymouth Colony or Plymouth Plantation was one of the first permanent English settlements, along with Jamestown in Virginia, in what became the United States. William Bradford's Of Plymouth Plantation is a remarkable work by a man who himself was something of a marvel. It remains one of the most readable seventeenth-century American books, attractive to us as much for its artfulness as for its high seriousness, the work of a good storyteller with intelligence and wit.
