Summary
A beautifully bound hardcover with gilding and a ribbon marker, this collection of stories embodies the very essence of the Season. Here are time-honored classics by Charles Dickens, Washington Irving, and O. Henry and little known tales by Stephen Crane, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Bret Harte. There are stories for children by Louisa May Alcott, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Lucy Maud Montgomery as well as surprising stories from Cleveland Amory, Pearl Buck and many others. This treasure belongs under the Christmas tree to be shared and read aloud with family and friends for many Christmases to come.
