Details

To one of the longest-running Christmas story anthologies in American history we add yet another volume--our twelfth in 12 years. The series is one of the finest libraries of Christmas stories in English. What's the secret of its appeal? Perhaps it's the lump-in-the-throat factor, the moving stories that grip the heart and moisten the eyes. fortunately, all 12 volumes are still available in print at the original price.

In this year's collection Senator John McCain of Arizona recalls his most special Christmas, celebrated in a North Vietnamese prisoner-of-war camp, where men of faith, joyful and triumphant in the face of torment, exchanged gifts they did not have.

Another selection tells the story of the birth of "Silent Night", one of the songs the prisoners sang. Other stories tell of Christmas money lost and then better-than-found; of relationships mended; of temptations trumped; of orphans nurtured; of lovers reunited. In these pages the human spirit, with all its passion and pride, faith and foibles, finds hope once again in a manger.
