In cooperation with the Plimoth Plantation, a living-history museum in Massachusetts, National Geographic has recreated the first Thanksgiving. Photographs by National Geographic photographers of the recreation at Plimoth Plantation illustrate this book.
In 1621, in a small settlement on the edge of the sea, 52 English colonists celebrated their first harvest. The colonists were joined by 90 men of the Wampanoag tribe for a gathering that was to last three days in a town now known as Plymouth. Over the centuries, there have been countless versions of this story, creating a popular myth of the first Thanksgiving. Many Americans imagine brave, peaceful settlers inviting a few wild Indians over for a turkey dinner. But there was no pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce at this celebration. There were no Indians with woven blankets over their shoulders and large feathered headdresses. No pilgrims with somber black clothes and silver buckle hats either. The English didn't even call themselves Pilgrims.
This book puts aside that myth and takes a new look at our American history. It questions what we know and recovers lost voices of the Wampanoag people. True history includes the voices of all its participants. 1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving invites young people to read, listen, and think about our shared history. The book also features a foreword, a section on the actual reenactment and the concept of living history, a chronology, an index, and a bibliography.
Discover what it would be like to cross the sea with the Pilgrims and set off to a new land. Richly detailed photographs illustrate what life would be like aboard the Mayflower, how they navigated the sea, and who and what they encountered when they finally reached their destination. 47 pages, softcover with index.
Discover the history behind Thanksgiving and why we celebrate it with What Was the First Thanksgiving?. Filled with historical background on the Pilgrims and the reasons behind their voyage to the New World, the native Wampanoag tribe, the difficulties both groups encountered, plus the reason that Thanksgiving was made into a national holiday and more!

The Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving lasted three whole days. Ann McGovern's simple text introduces children to the struggles of the Pilgrims during their first year at Plymouth Colony and the events leading to the historic occasion we celebrate today.

You'll recognize the beloved wit of Jean Fritz' writing as soon as you open Who's that Stepping on Plymouth Rock?. You'll discover how we our knowledge of the connection between the rock and the Pilgrims (or "First Comers", as they were called them) was due to a 95-year-old man carried down to the beach; what caused it to crack in two; what caused it to crack in two again; and how we honor it now. A must-read for Thanksgiving. 31 pages, softcover. Illustrations by J. B. Handelsman.
When Bartholemew, Remember, and Mary Allerton and their parents first step down from the Mayflower after sixty days at sea, they never dream that life in the New World will be so hard. Many in their Plymouth colony won't make it through the winter, and the colony's first harvest is possible only with the help of two friends, Samoset and Squanto. Richly detailed paintings show how the pilgrims lived after landing at Plymouth, through the dark winter and into the busy days of spring, summer, and fall. Culminating with the excitement of the original Thanksgiving feast, Three Young Pilgrims makes history come alive. Recommended for ages 5 to 10.
Evocative illustrations convey the feelings of hope, fear and the living of daily life in a new land on every page. Written in the first-person plural, the story is filled with quotes from the Plimoth Living Interpreters, as well as primary documents such as Mourt's Relation, giving the text a real-life quality. Portions are written from the perspectives of the various groups, including the Pilgrims as a whole, and the menfolk, womenfolk and children and youngfolk, who all explain what daily life is like for them. 46 pages, softcover with glossary.
