In 1621, less than half of the original Pilgrims had survived the first-year difficulties of living in the New World, (including extreme cold, lack of shelter, and lack of nourishment) but they had a bountiful second-year harvest. With aid from Samoset and Squanto and other Native Americans they learned of new foods and methods for food collection. They had corn, fruits, vegetables, syrup, wild game and fowl, and fish. There was even enough to store for the Winter.
