Old ChristmasBook - 1977
Warmly Convivial and delightfully festival, this charming and long forgotten holiday classic, by one of American literature's most beloved writiers, was inspired, in part, by Dickens' A Christmas Carol and other celebrations of oldtime Yule.Splendid suppers and rural churches, cheerful dances and hearty spirits imbue this short novel with the magic of the season. This festive work, first published in 1896, deserves to be a holiday tradition alongside Dickens in the celebrations of the winter soltice.
