Product Description

This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of the first 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. Recommended for ages 5 to 10.

    I loved how this book really engages the reader and brings them in to the story, coming from Squanto's perspective. I also loved how accurate the story is to history! This is a book every child in America should own, yet tragically is not a story so often shared.

    I like how well this story is written and its great illustrations. My 4-year-old grandson sat quietly through the whole story! I'm buying for other grandchildren.

    Eric Metaxas' book with its beautiful illustrations by Shannon Stirnweis bring this little-known piece of history to light in a very effective way. I love Metaxas' comparison with the story of Joseph. Brings a whole new and very important perspective on Thanksgiving and God's sovereignty. My 9-year old grandson was touched by the story.

    A wonderful book about an extrodinary person! It is very much like the story if Joseph for a more modern time. I read it to my class and they found it amazing! A must read!

    This book shares the story of Squanto, more than just his interaction with the Pilgrims, but his kidnapping, transportation to Spain, living with the monks, living in England, and then back to America.
