A FRESH LOOK AT AMERICA'S ROOTS

Go beyond the turkey. Past the football games. Over the river, through the woods and back to Virginia in 1619 to learn about how this national holiday began with gratitude. 

 

This book was created in conjunction with the Virginia Thanksgiving Festival Committee to reclaim America's first English-Speaking Thanksgiving for the State of Virginia.

After introducing readers to this rarely told history, the author offers a cook's tour of some notable Virginians, as well as the flora and fauna found at Berkeley Plantation, the site of that long ago Thanksgiving celebration.
