In this issue, we take a fresh look at the Pilgrims and follow their movement from England to the Netherlands to the New World. We see how while their arrival in Massachusetts meant a chance for a better life for them, the English settlement they started also forever impacted the way of life for the natives already living in the area. Ever wonder how the Pilgrims packed for their journey? Or what the trip in the Mayflower was like? Or how our Thanksgiving Day compares to the 1621 feast the Pilgrims hosted? We've got those subjects and more covered in the October issue. Plus there's a crossword puzzle and a recipe for a classic stewed pumpkin dish. Doesn't that sound delicious?
