This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of the Thanksgiving was neither white nor Indian, but God. In 1608, English traders came to Massachusetts and captured a 12-year old Indian, Squanto, and sold him into slavery. He was raised by Christians and taught faith in God. Ten years later he was sent home to America. Upon arrival, he learned an epidemic had wiped out his entire village. But God had plans for Squanto. God delivered a Thanksgiving miracle: an English-speaking Indian living in the exact place where the Pilgrims land in a strange new world.
Eric Metaxas is the author of the New York Times #1 bestseller, Bonhoeffer; Amazing Grace; Seven Men; and Miracles. His books have been translated into more than 20 languages. ABC News has called Metaxas a photogenic, witty ambassador for faith in public life. He speaks to thousands around the United States and internationally each year. He lives in New York City with his wife and daughter.
