The Pilgrims and the First Thanksgivingby Mary Englar, Peter McDonnell
The Pilgrims and the First Thanksgiving recounts this historical event in dramatic, graphic novel format. When English Pilgrims arrived to North America, their new colony met a rough beginning. Bitter weather oppressed them, and sickness took many lives. Native Americans visited the colony and brought furs to trade and farming techniques to help the colonists with their crops. To celebrate their bountiful harvest, the Pilgrims and Native Americans joined for a feast. Inside this book, readers will encounter the events, people, and actions that shaped the first Thanksgiving and the lives of the Pilgrims.
