In this acclaimed bestseller, President Carter returns to his early years in Plains, Georgia, the same locale that enchanted readers of An Hour Before Daylight, which The New Yorker called "an American classic." He remembers the Christmas days of his boyhood and later years, re-creating here the simplicity of community and celebration with family and friends. Jimmy Carter has written another American classic in the tradition of Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory and Dylan Thomas's A Child's Christmas in Wales. The Carter family, although poor during the Great Depression is rich with love and thoughtfulness for each other and their neighbors.
This is a Christmas classic. Beautiful and great gift copy!
Following the hugely successful memoir of his boyhood, An Hour Before Daylight, Jimmy Carter now remembers Christmas in Plains---this very special day provides a source of spiritual inspiration, respite, family ties, friendship, vacation fun and the simplicity of community.
