About This Item

100 pages with illustrations and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 1/4") bound in original publisher's brown cloth with black lettering to spine and pictorial turkey to cover. Second printing. Although many attribute the first thanksgiving to the Pilgrims, that celebration was nothing more than a harvest festival. In his book, We Gather Together: The Story of Thanksgiving, anthropologist Ralph Linton outlined the harvest festivals celebrated in the Old World. In the Hebrew, Greek, Roman, Scottish, Irish, Dutch, English, and Slavic traditions, there appears an annual harvest festival of feasting and giving thanks. In the same way, the Pilgrims, who carried with them their Old World traditions, were naturally going to have harvest festivals and give thanks for their blessings. Condition: Some pencil underlining throughout, corners gently bumped. Jacket edge tears and chips, spine ends chipped with 1/4 inch lacking front head else a very good copy in a good jacket.
