In 1620 a small, leaky boat dropped anchor off the coast of New England. On board were just over one hundred settlers. Some were Puritans and some were not, but all were seeking a new home. By the end of the first winter, nearly half were dead, but by the following Fall they had taken in their first harvest, thanks to hard work and the help of their Wampanoag neighbors. They celebrated this achievement with a feast that we now know as Thanksgiving. But what did they actually eat at that First Thanksgiving? Using a selection of primary sources, including Pilgrim accounts, period cook books, and probate inventories, the author brings the world of the Mayflower settlers to life and creates a 17th century feast incorporating only the ingredients they would have had available (including the five deer that the Wampanoag contributed). An engaging, often humorous, but never dull account of the birth of America’s most beloved festival and the Pilgrim Fathers we thought we knew.

About the Author:

Helen Stringer is the author of the Middle Grade fantasy novels, "Spellbinder" and "The Midnight Gate." A storyteller since her Liverpool, England childhood, her first job was researching the family history of the Earls of Sefton at their estate, Croxteth Hall. Helen now lives in a barn in Northern California, where writes, reads a lot of history, collects vintage cookbooks, and loves to cook – though she has yet to try the recipe for invalids in a cookbook from 1736 which involves putting 200 dead sparrows into an earthenware jar, burying them in horse dung for a month, and then making them into a broth – though she believes the smell alone would be enough to get you out of bed.
