A Historical look at the first Thanksgiving. This graphic novel covers the first few years before the Pilgrims arrived in Plymouth. Beginning with Squanto, whose full name was Tisquantum, we cover his capture and enslavement before bringing him back to his homeland, only to find all his people wiped out from the plague. From there, the story picks up with Remember Allerton sharing about the new settlers and their difficult trip in the Mayflower, and even more difficult winter in the new land.
