Sometime between September 21 and November 9, 1621, the English colonists, whom we call Pilgrims, and the Wampanoag people shared a harvest celebration. That meal has become known as the First Thanksgiving. This is the story of what may have actually happened during those days, as told by Dancing Moccasins, a fourteen-year-old Wampanoag boy, and Resolved White, a six-year-old English boy.

Photographed in full color at the Plimoth Plantation, this fascinating reenactment will let readers experience the time when English colonists settled on the rich and fertile land of the Wampanoag people.

My son loves this story of what could have happened during that first Thanksgiving from the perspective of a Pilgrim boy and a Native American boy. Best of all, the pages are loaded with photos of well-done reinactment, including convincing dress. I have not seen another book like this. Read full review
