"As a good book will do, 103 Pilgrims encouraged me to further research the Pilgrims after finishing the book, and seriously consider booking a trip to Massachusetts. Were there really 103 Pilgrims? Where is the original Mayflower Compact today? Can ancestry to the Pilgrims be proven? I was left with so many questions after reading this book, and the same is destined to happen to all readers who pick up this engaging and thought-provoking narrative."
