Combining fiction and nonfiction, this dramatic story follows the Robertson family as they prepare for Thanksgiving in the year 1841. As with all Canadian pioneer families, Thanksgiving is a special day for the Robertsons, but this year they have more reasons than usual to give thanks.

Each chapter of the story is enhanced by information about the pioneer period and how Thanksgiving was celebrated in the past.
