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.
The author is a career journalist, who has written for The New York Times and The Christian Science Monitor. This is her 10th book, including
“There Goes a Mermaid: A NorFolktale,”
“Tell Me a Story” and “Dreamcatchers.”
The illustrator, designer and screenwriter lives in Cape Town, South Africa. In this studio, ideas become visible - the mission is to help the end user to see, feel or understand your concept, a mood or an emotion. Ideas and concepts are regularly born here too.
