1621: A New Look at Thank. In a letter written in 1621, a total of 115 words described this harvest gathering and later became the basis for the holiday we celebrate today on the 4th Thursday of November, Thanksgiving. The 90 Indians who converged on the Plimoth Colony had nurtured this very land that the English took over just a year earlier for thousands of years.

Photographs by National Geographic photographers of the recreation at Plimoth Plantation illustrate this book. True history includes the voices of all its participants. In 1621, in a small settlement on the edge of the sea, 52 English colonists celebrated their first harvest. The colonists were joined by 90 men of the Wampanoag tribe for a gathering that was to last three days in a town now known as Plymouth. The book also features a foreword, a section on the actual reenactment and the concept of living history, a chronology, an index, and a bibliography.

1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving. Published October 1st 2004 by National Geographic Children's Books (first published September 1st 2001). 1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving (I Am American). 0792261399 (ISBN13: 9780792261391). 1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving, published in 2001, presents Thanksgiving from a non-traditional (from a . viewpoint) perspective. When I was growing up I don’t believe I gave a thought to whether Native Americans lived on the land that was claimed by the Pilgrims.

The co-authors talked about their children’s book, 1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving, published by National Geographic Society. The authors and other panelists explained the historical context for Thanksgiving and tried to separate Thanksgiving fact from Thanksgiving fiction.

I like the realistic photographs in this book. It is a 7.1 level Accelerated Reader book. There are 46 pages of text with glossy photographs on every other page. Each page has about three paragraphs of material. Each paragraph has 4 to 6 sentences. The story of Thanksgiving is more realistically portrayed in this book's text. It dispels the myths, and allows a more truthful story of what the feasting was about. It also shares the truth about disease on both sides (Natives and settlers).

This book was recommended to me as an historically accurate portrayal of Thanksgiving. I've learned so much regarding the inaccuracies of my own education since I began college and it's incredibly sad. We've almost successfully erased indigenous Americans from this land and from the history books. When we do include them, we turn them into mythical, historical beings and ignore the bloody truth of how we, as settlers, treated them and continue to treat them. I don't want my son to have to wait until he's in his twenties to learn more accurate historical lessons. Not only is this book interesting to me as an adult, it is written in a way that is easy for children to understand, also. I love that the photographs are present-day reenactments with Wampanoag artisans, scholars, performers, & educators who work with the Wampanoag Indian Program at Plimoth Plantation. I wish our schools would present this information instead of dressing the kids up as "pilgrims" and "indians" each year and claiming that it's done to honor the first Thanksgiving. It's insulting & inaccurate.

Good information for those wanting to be more truthful about the Thanksgiving story. It could be organized and presented better maybe. My older son is a very good reader in second grade, but this isn’t really accessible to him. I needed to read and interpret the information, and it’s a little boring.

This is absolutely the best book available for kids to learn the truth about the events surrounding the coming of the Pilgrims to Plymouth and the relationships between them and the local people. Very balanced and honest, this book offers a respectful view of this time in native and U.S. history.

As a teacher, this book is great! But... I got it for my family hoping it would be something we could read as part of our Thanksgiving program. It was a bit lengthy so we just read bits and pieces. Overall, outstanding book... just want not quite what I was wanting for my needs.

Excellent way for children to find out about history and tradition in an unbiased way. National Geographic quality. Text is challenging enough to actually teach vocabulary, especially for the younger readers. The book is targeted to 3rd grader and up, but I think that younger readers might find it interesting too, if someone reads it to them.
Amis
a wonderful pictorial presentation of Plymouth life and history which gives more accurate information relating to the first settlement at Plymouth, and more information of the Wampanoag Indians and their valued assistance to the settlers and the first Thanksgiving
Great seasonal book for the classroom!
