Bradford describes how several difficulties the Puritans would face during their emigration and settlement in the New World.
Before the Puritans arrived in the New World, William Bradford describes their choice of making the migration across the Atlantic a dangerous and daring one. He warned them about the danger in the form of wild nature and barbarous people, they would likely going encounter. While the Puritans were excited about being able to exercise their religion with freedom as they were approaching away from the orthodox clutches of England and they were also keen on securing free land at the new settlement. These conceptions were based on the writings circulated in Europe about the brutish description of the natives of the New World.

Hello. This question is incomplete. The full question is:
Read the passage and answer the question.  Being thus passed the vast ocean, and a sea of troubles before in their preparation (as may be remembered, by that which went before), they had now no friends to welcome them, nor inns to entertain or refresh their weather-beaten bodies, no houses or much less towns to repair to, to seek for succor. It is recorded in Scripture as a mercy to the apostle and his shipwrecked company, that the barbarians showed them no small kindness in refreshing them, but these savage barbarians, when they met with them (as after will appear) were readier to fill their sides full of arrows then otherwise. And for the season it was winter, and they that know the winters of that country know them to be sharp and violent, and subject to cruel and fierce storms, dangerous to travel to known places, much more to search an unknown coast. Besides, what could they see but hideous and desolate wilderness, full of wild beasts and wild men? And what multitudes there might be of them they know not. Summarize Bradford’s description of the New World in the above passage. Use details from the passage to support your answer. Your answer should be approximately 150 words.
Bradford describes the new world as something hostile, unpleasant, dangerous and does not convey any kind of pleasure. He says that the natives are not friendly, quite the contrary, they are wild, undisciplined, violent and ill-mannered, they are hostile and do not welcome visitors with smiles and grace, but they point deadly arrows in their faces, so that they know they are not. welcome. In short, he says that traveling to unknown places is dangerous, because of the security uncertainty that the place provides, but one thing he says, the natives have strong feelings of hatred and disgust for the settlers.
