Format: Paperback
I have to say it's been quite a while since I have enjoyed such a pleasure of reading something like Thanksgiving Tales. As an editor of American historical fiction I have an interest in anything that has to do with America and its story. Most of my readings in the past have been part of doing my job. It's rare when I relax with something for just pleasure, and usually it is something other than history. This book may not be fiction, but it is indeed historical in that it deals with a strictly American custom that we can truly say is ours alone, and, has its roots in a both very fascinating and volatile time in our nations history. Thanksgiving Tales (TT) is a very generous and diverse collection of personal recollections about Americas one true holiday. There really isn't a story here that is retold that a reader couldn't find something close to home in. This collection has it all, colorful, humorous, heart warming, (and breaking), affectionate, forlorn, blessed, you name it and it is here. Not all the tales come off as well as others in their touching us in some way, or being that entertaining. But that seems to me to be just a question of our particular tastes when it comes to spinning old tales of holidays and family get together's in general. Some people just never care much for them, or have a very specific idea of what an old family or holiday tale should be made up of. These contributors recollect the day and its memory in their own way. Personally I found most them very warm and entertaining, and I enjoyed this book immensely. And I can even see myself reading some of the favorites again some time in the future...Read more ›

This collection of tales about Thanksgiving will make you both happy and sad. Everyone has their favorite memory of that wonderful day in the gathering of the American families.

I thought that Jan Underwood's "It's Not Thanksgiving until Momma Cries" was superb. I laughed at the mouse that got trapped in the oven. And, the poem by Sheri Nelons was wonderful.

Each one of these is special for their own memory. I became nostalgic for those days that are gone forever but remain so vivid in my memory.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Most highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This is an anthology full of an eclectic mix of Thanksgiving Day stories. As Thanksgiving is a holiday only celebrated in the U.S., these are fun stories about anything you can think of having to do with this holiday. The writing is crisp, concise, and very relatable. The stories range from food to cultural experiences to sentimental stories, even to a hilarious family football game. These are great stories to read any time of year, but especially if one wants to appreciate a thoroughly American holiday, or just needs a little help getting into the spirit of things!

It makes all my thanksgivings look tame. Worth reading before the holiday, puts a smile on your face. Before you take on your own large bird.

I like Thansgiving and being with family and friends. Doesn't everyone? It's always interesting to see the point of view of others. I liked the collection by various writers and reading about their thanksgiving memories.

I enjoyed the stories. I read them all on Thanksgiving, and they helped get me in the "Thanksgiving mood!" There were a good diversity of stories, representing both functional and dysfunctional families, rural and urban settings, and some ethnic diversity. Some were touching, and some made you want to cry. My only complaint is that I really love humorous stories, and there were not enough of those for my taste. I remember one being laugh out loud funny, and a couple with some humorous parts. Overall, though, a nice way to enter the holiday season.
