Create your own family tradition with this beautiful book depicting the perfect Maine Christmas. Written in 1941 by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Robert P. Tristram Coffin and illustrated with gorgeous and evocative original woodblock prints by Maine artist Blue Butterfield.
Christmas in Maine describes a farmhouse “banked with emerald jewels clustered on bayberry boughs,” a house stuffed with aunts, uncles, and cousins by the cart load, with mince pies by the legion. You will feel like one of the family as he brings you along to play with cousins in the hay chaff, take a bouncy afternoon sled ride, savor the goose during the three-hour meal, string popcorn for the tree, and listen to tales by firelight at the drowsy end of a long and perfect day.
This special edition is sure to become a keepsake, a book to read aloud year after year to remind ourselves of the true meaning of holiday traditions.
