This chapter examines two competing views of successful colonization, one represented by Plymouth colonist William Bradford and the other by his fellow colonist Isaac Allerton. Whereas Bradford sought a community having limited associations with outsiders, Allerton recognized the crucial importance of ever-expanding alliance networks, forging a series of transatlantic, intercolonial, and intercultural alliances and trade networks, including with Sir Ferdinando Gorges, Thomas Morton, Abenakis and Algonqians in New England, and the Dutch in New Netherland.

Keywords:   Plymouth, Isaac Allerton, William Bradford, alliance, trade, Ferdinando Gorges, Thomas Morton, Algonquians, Dutch
