Product Description:

This picture book tells the incredible true story of Squanto, an English-speaking Native American. The book begins in 1608, when twelve-year-old Squanto is captured by the British. Squanto is sold into slavery in Spain, but a group of monks rescue him. The kind monks teach him English and about God. Squanto misses his family, so years later, he begins the long journey home to North America. Squanto is devastated when he learns that no one in his tribe survived a disease outbreak. But God has a plan for Squanto. When the Pilgrims arrive he acts as a liaison between the Native Americans and the Pilgrims, and the groups work together to produce a bountiful harvest, which brings the first Thanksgiving. By Eric Metaxes. 40 pgs, pb.

Publisher Description:

Experience the true story from American history about the spiritual roots and historical beginnings of Thanksgiving.This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of Thanksgiving was neither white nor Indian but God. In 1608, English traders came to Massachusetts and captured a twelve-year-old Indian, Squanto, and sold him into slavery. He was raised by Christians and taught faith in God. Ten years later he was sent home to America. Upon arrival, he learned an epidemic had wiped out his entire village. But God had plans for Squanto. God delivered a Thanksgiving miracle: an English-speaking Indian living in the exact place where the Pilgrims landed in a strange new world.
