Thanksgiving, the quintessential American holiday, is a time to rethink the values on which the United States was founded. Here it is presented through nearly 900 photos depicting 3,400 diverse images. Ranging from the nineteenth century to the present day, this comprehensive assortment includes platters, plates, decorations, postcards, candy containers, decanters, toys, turkey calls, and more.
The turkey itself is exhaustively portrayed in ceramic, glass, pottery, paper, and wood. Also featured are items related to special Thanksgiving Day events, such as football games, parades, and "turkey trots." Informative captions serve as miniature history lessons and also provide current values.
This book is the first of its kind and will be the ultimate reference for all who treasure the deep traditions of this cherished holiday.
