Synopsis

The American Patriot's Treasury of Historical Thanksgiving Dinner Ideas by Carrie Franzwa

This unique primer on re-creating authentic elements of 1621 New England life brims with first-of-a-kind ideas for turning Thanksgiving into a time travel celebration. Franzwa reveals a treasure trove of resources and tips for reintroducing early English and Native American culture to this cherished national holiday. Readers are inspired to experience for themselves the charming pleasures of making period decorations and utility items, playing antique games, preparing and tasting early New England foods, using 1621 language, etiquette, music and dance, and sitting at a table set in old-world style. You will even discover how to authentically add 17th century pirates to the mix! An exhaustive resource that is historically accurate and culturally responsible toward American Indians and African Americans. Expanded second edition. Softcover, perfect bound. (Also available in spiral bound, see alternative Lulu.com listing, same title)
