Atlantic Canadian Christmas Reader

  Author:   Lesley Crewe    

An Atlantic Canadian Christmas Reader brings together twenty-nine wonderful stories that illustrate some of the region’s unique and time-honoured holiday traditions,from fictional accounts of contemporary family gatherings and feasts to nineteenth-century tales of Christmas at sea. Others describe more modest celebrations, from times when food and money were scarce, and during war years when the only bounty to be found was in the true spirit of the season.

With work by well-known regional storytellers like Helen Creighton, Evelyn Richardson, David Weale, Clary Croft, and Bruce Nunn, and an introduction by Cape Breton novelist Lesley Crewe, An Atlantic Canadian Christmas Readeris the perfect way to add a little Christmas cheer to your bookshelf.
