Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-5. Packed with fascinating information, this little book focuses on food, but provides insights into other aspects of the Pilgrims' life aboard the Mayflower and at the Plymouth settlement. While the writing at the beginning is simplified to the point of choppiness, the style becomes somewhat more fluent in later chapters. A glossary, a bibliography, and recipes for a Pilgrim menu round out the book. From a selection seen in galley proofs, the illustrations appear to be reproductions of engravings and vignettes with a period flavor. An intriguing resource for the many classrooms where a Pilgrim Thanksgiving feast is an annual event. ~--Carolyn Phelan"
