Countering the prevailing, traditional story of the first Thanksgiving, with its black-hatted, silver-buckled Pilgrims; blanket-clad, be-feathered Indians; cranberry sauce; pumpkin pie and turkey, this lushly illustrated photo-essay presents a more measured, balanced and historically accurate version of the three-day harvest celebration in 1621.
