A welcome addition to the picture book history collection. ...The text does a remarkable job of giving larger context to the complexity of Indigenous life prior to colonization...This essential book should replace many established titles on the shelf. —School Library Journal, starred review

A measured corrective to pervasive myths about what is often referred to as the 'first Thanksgiving.' ...The lens Newell offers is a Native one, describing how the Wampanoag and other Native peoples received the English rather than the other way around... Essential. —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
