Hobomok and Thanksgiving
What happened to the Pilgrims after the first Thanksgiving?
Hobomok and Thanksgiving introduces Hobomok, a Wampanoag leader and friend of the Pilgrims, and shows the struggles that still confronted the new colony. It also gives a glimpse of the first Thanksgiving and recounts the miraculous events that led to the second recorded Thanksgiving, from Hobomok’s perspective.
Readers will witness God’s answer to prayer and the life-altering impact it had on the Pilgrims—and Hobomok as well.

"Hobomok and Thanksgiving is a well-told story of a little known event revealing much about the faith of the Pilgrims and why they set aside Days of Thanksgiving. I highly commend this work by Rebekka Parry which will be enjoyed by children and adults alike."

"In a time when our faith is being persistently attacked by secularists, Rebekka Parry tells a story of faith our children, and adults, need to hear. I hope this will be one of many more stories that will help awaken our people to their Godly heritage and turn their faces back toward God."

We don’t get bogged down in the dates but in the people and stories of the past. What did they wear? How did they live? What did they believe? How do their actions and stories impact us today? When we bring our programs to you, we strive to make history tangible and relevant to the audience. (That might mean stroking a beaver pelt or trying on a felt hat.) We think history is fun, and we enjoy sharing it with you!
