We have another Thanksgiving holiday book from the olden days. This book is more the familiar story those of us of a certain age remember as the “true” story of Thanksgiving. Of course it reads a bit more sweetly and glosses over some of the rougher experiences of the Pilgrims. Not to mention under playing the role of the local natives in keeping the colonists alive that first winter.
When I was a kid, the story of the Pilgrims and the voyage of the Mayflower were central to the Thanksgiving holiday. I don’t think that is as true today. Thanksgiving seems to be the warm up act to Christmas and the Black Friday sales.
For librarians, this is the start of the season when people start asking when the tax forms will show up. If you have a long weekend, more power to you.
