Summary
"Elmer Kelton writes about what Christmas was like in West Texas during the Great Depression." "Actually, he experienced Christmas on two ranches - the one where his father was foreman, and the one his paternal grandfather operated. His grandparents' home lacked electricity, running water, and indoor plumbing, but it was full of cousins, delicious food, and a warm glow that reflected more than just the heat generated by the pot-bellied stove in the living room." "This heart-warming little book includes accounts of Kelton's last Christmas at home before shipping out for war in Europe, his first Christmas after the war, and a special Christmas in Austria more than thirty-five years later."--Jacket
