KIRKUS REVIEW

Companion volume to Count's 5000 Years of Christmas this is a similar approach to the origins and traditions of Thanksgiving. The Lintens go back to the Old Testament, then on down to the English Harvest Home, its transfer to America with the Pilgrims, and from contemporary sources, the menus, customs, entertainments. Finally, the legalization as a national holiday by presidential proclamation during Lincoln's administration.
