From a snowy Appalachian mountain village, to a crowded Washington, D.C., subway station, to the muddy trenches of World War I, each of these collected stories and illustrations provides a unique insight into the message of Christmas. Humorous anecdotes, scientific research and powerful historical accounts all find their place among these stand-alone chapters, each revealing from a different angle that the miracles of Christmas are almost always . . . unexpected. Each story in this thought-provoking little book is accompanied by gorgeous sepia-tone photos, making it well-suited for your coffee table as well as your bookshelf.
