So the real story of Thanksgiving. It is a tradition on this program. And this is the time of year, to me, the holiday season begins and I think to most people. This time of year I just become overwhelmed with so many emotions, memories. And the way I'm built, most of my memories are positive. I think, in my case, when I think of nostalgia or the past, the things that automatically occur to me are pleasant ones.
It takes me to The True Story of Thanksgiving. It was written about in chapter 6 of See, I Told You So, book two. It's in a chapter titled, Dead White Guys or What the History Books Never Tell You. And this chapter, by the way, served as the foundation for the first book in the Rush Revere series, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. Where, in addition to the true story of Thanksgiving, we have the true story of the Pilgrims, who they were, where they came from, why they came, what happened when they got here, what they had to do to fix what went wrong when they got here, and what role the Pilgrims play in the overall founding of America.
