This book is something of a primary source.  It is a history of the colonial US written in the period.  It was written in the mid-1600s but published 200 years later.  It is an important historical document because it describes how the Pilgrims chose Plymouth and how they established their settlement.  It is actually one of the few primary sources of that period and those important events.
