            America's Real First Thanksgiving: St. Augustine, Florida, September 8, 1565 (Library Binding)

            By Gioia, Robyn

            When most Americans think of the first Thanksgiving, they think of the Pilgrims and the Indians in New England in 1621. But 56 years before they celebrated, Spanish explorer Pedro Men?ndez arrived on the coast of Florida and founded the first North American city, St. Augustine. O...n September 8, 1565, the Spanish and the native Timucua celebrated with a feast of Thanksgiving. The Spanish most likely offered cocido, a rich stew made with pork, and the Timucua may have brought wild turkey, venison, or even alligator, along with corn, beans, and squash. Learn about our real first Thanksgiving. Learn about Spain and Florida in the 1560s. And make your own cocido from a recipe provided in this important and groundbreaking book.

            Divided into four sections A Adventures, Great Places, Reapers and Sowers, and Wild Lives A this wonderfully imaginative book uses a rich array of historical and contemporary entries to introduce the history, culture, and natural life of the California coast from the Oregon borde...r to the Baja peninsula. Readers learn of Wells Fargo stagecoach whips, surfers who brave the sharks in the Red Triangle, and the Pigeon Express that carried mail to the Channel Islands in the days before radio. They meet a band of gold miners and a Native American woman who survived alone on an island for eighteen years. There are pieces about seals and sea otters, chaparral and redwoods, the La Brea tar pits, and the fine art of grunion hunting. The selections, often featuring children as the protagonists, include contributions from Native Americans and the many ethnic groups who have made California their home. A list of parks and other natural areas families can visit is included.
