Summary, etc.:
"Plymouth Rock has long stood as a symbol of the Pilgrims' journey to and settlement in America. But how much of the story surrounding it is true? What did the Pilgrims' arrival mean to the Wampanoag people who were already living there? What were the long-lasting effects of the interactions between the two groups? How did a seaside rock come to be associated with the Pilgrims' landing, and was it really part of their story at all? Readers will find out the answers to these questions and discover more of what Plymouth Rock can tell us about American history"-- Provided by publisher.
