Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

The Pilgrims had refused the services of John Smith because they wanted no Stranger to tell them what to do. Instead, the Pilgrims, whether they realized it or not, came under the control of Squanto. Explain how Squanto manipulated the Pilgrims and their relationship with Massasoit.

Essay Topic 2

A common theme throughout the book is the Puritan belief that everything in life happens for a reason. Explain this belief, how it affected the Puritan's daily lives, and show examples of incidents the Puritans believed occurred because God made them occur.

Essay Topic 3

Some say that the Pilgrims' passion and fervor that enabled them to survive those first grim years threatened to darken into a "mean-spirited fanaticism." Using examples from the book, argue whether you think the Pilgrims did or did not become mean-spirited fanatics.
