A fan of Graham Greene since "Dances With Wolves", who leaves behind his quirky humor in this story, and gives a feeling reading, I also am thankful to the author, Mr. Metaxes, who did such a nice job telling what it was like to be an Indian/First People before the Pilgrims landed, and how Squanto, after being unwillingly captured, taken to Spain and finally returned, made an extraordinary coincidence by meeting up with the first Pilgrims, speaking English. The dinner
sounded authentic, and delicious. Would I so love to include lobster and mussels at this historical dinner! But, at least I can add succotash, another dish that ran true for the time because Indians
did grow the "THree Sisters": corn, beans and squash.

I took off just one star for the music, which at times was irritating and invasive, not really adding to
or enhancing the mood.

This is a family story,worthwhile for both children and adults.
