In this touching, true story, award-winning writer Philip Lee Williams tells how life changed for him in 1959 as he spent his last Christmas in the country. It is a powerful memoir of southern Christmas traditions and one boy’s dreams. Williams brings back Christmases of the 1950s with insight, affection, and a keen eye for the world around him; a world much bigger than his back yard in Madison, Georgia. This timeless holiday memoir will be cherished for years by all who can see Christmas through the eyes of a nine-year-old child.
