The True Story

by Penny Colman

      Here's a comprehensive history of the Thanksgiving holiday. Penny Coleman investigates the origins and celebrations associated with the November holiday. Filled with period illustrations, drawings and portraits plus informative charts, this will be your family's main resource on information about the holiday.

Who is responsible for campaigning for Thanksgiving as a national holiday?  Where were turkeys first domesticated, or farm-raised? What two traditions are the origins of the actual holiday?  These, and a host of other questions, are all addressed in this very special volume.
