Stories from the "first" Thanksgiving


Stories from the "first" Thanksgiving

Lynley Jones

A fictionalized account of the true "first" Thanksgiving story - with recipes! Written for children from the perspectives of two real people who were actually there: a 6 year-old English girl and Squanto, a Wampanoag man. Written by me, in consultation with foodways managers at Plimoth Plantation and based on historical records and available sources.

(Psst: this picture gets it all wrong):
