Below are links to some of the classic 19th and early 20th century histories of the Pilgrims and Plymouth.  For books written by the Pilgrims themselves, and their contemporaries, see the Primary Sources page.  Since the copyrights have expired on these histories, they are available for free on Google Books and  While these histories are often outdated, they do contain a wealth of information and research, some of which is overlooked by modern-day historians.
