1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving

by Catherine O'Neill Grace

This book presents the true story of the origins of Thanksgiving with a balanced English and Native American perspective, and features a reenactment by the Plimoth Plantation of the 1621 harvest. Full-color photos. Countering the prevailing, traditional story of the first Thanksgiving, with its black-hatted, silver-buckled Pilgrims; blanket-clad, be-feathered Indians; cranberry sauce; pumpkin pie; and turkey, this lushly illustrated photo-essay presents a more measured, balanced, and historically accurate version of the three-day harvest celebration in 1621.
