I agree with what you say about de las Casas "narratives were only effective to an extent." I think it was admirable what he did do because the atrocities may have continued for much longer had he not spoke up. In speaking up, Casa was "accused of treason and even endured charges of heresy" (Bartolome De Las Casas 39).

The people Columbus met were welcoming to Columbus and his men although they didn’t have the spices that were originally expected and needed.
When the Puritans left England they were in the look for a new home where they could have their own beliefs.

The help and how selfless they were to one another surprised the other men “...The Lord is never wanting unto his in their greatest needs, let His holy name have all the praise” ( Bradford 11). The puritans also made peace with the Indian tribes which was crucial for their survival.
Listen to how almost 350 settlers died in these five years full of hardships. The first reason for death was Starvation. The settlers died from Starvation because they were not prepared. The settlers died from starvation because they were not prepared. A historian named Carville V. Earle once said, “Fish are present in local streams, but only in the spring and early summer are they there in impressive abundance.”(Blanton 55).
