The Pilgrims landed on the coast at Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and traveled up the coast to Plymouth. The weather was harsh because it was very cold and snowy. Squanto and Massasoit (Native Americans) helped them survive by teaching them to catch food or fish, plant corn with dead fish bones, and get syrup from maple trees. They had so much trouble growing crops because they landed in the late fall and the ground was too cold and hard. Nearly half of them died because of starvation.
