Plimoth Plantation and National Geographic collaborate to reveal the true story behind the first Thanksgiving. Setting aside popular myths of brave peaceful settlers, wild Indians, and turkey, it presents a fresh new look at this popular event in American history. Vibrant photos of a historic reenactment plus informative text based on rigorous research show children how 52 English colonists gathered with 90 men of the Wampanoag tribe and their families for three days to celebrate the harvest. Readers may be surprised to learn there were no Indians with large feathered headdresses and that the English didn't call themselves Pilgrims. This compelling account recovers the lost voices of the Wampanoag and invites young people to read and think about our shared history.

From the heart of Auckland and Christchurch to the lakes around Queenstown; from the fjords of Milford Sound to towering Mt. Cook on the South Island; and from the beautiful Bay of Islands to the bubbling sulfur springs of Rotorua in the North, this guide gives you every tool you need to plan a trip to this unique land on the other side of the world. Australian native and frequent Kiwi visitor Peter Turner escorts you through the incredibly varied land- and cityscapes that are today's New Zealand. Starting with a detailed introduction to the country's history, food, land, and culture, the book explores every corner of New Zealand, starting with Auckland, the bustling cosmopolitan jewel in the North. Turner takes readers down the islands to such magical places as Kiakoura, where you can swim with wild dolphins; stately Wellington, the proud and lively capital; Westland National Park, with its incredible gleaming glaciers; and charming Christchurch, whose gardens and parks give it a distinctly British feel. Special sidebars describe such topics as the Maori, the national obsession of rugby, and the many adventure activities (like bungee jumping, which originated outside Queenstown) that people often associate with the country.
