After their first harvest in 1621, the Pilgrims at Plymouth shared a three-day feast with their Native American neighbors. Of course, the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag didn't know it at the time, but they were making history, celebrating what would become a national holiday.
This book explains the history of the feast. It includes:
Background information about the first English colonists
An explanation of the reasons for the alliance between the colonists and the Native Americans
An account of how Thanksgiving became a national holiday
