Canadian Christmas traditions come to life through Canada`s best-loved writers. The joys of Christmas traditions in Canada come to life in Sleds, Sleighs and Snow: A Canadian Christmas Carol , which showcases the writings of Canada`s finest writers. Through the works of such beloved writers as Margaret Laurence, Lucy Maude Montgomery, Grey Owl, Emily Carr, Stephen Leacock and Robert Service, Christmas in Canada -- from coast to coast -- fills the pages of this new paperback edition. Sleds, Sleighs and Snow: A Canadian Christmas Carol includes memories such as horse-drawn sleigh rides in Montreal, dogsledding excursions in Labrador, musical feasts in British Columbia construction camps, and bittersweet times shared in a remote Yukon cabin. The essence of Canada`s Christmas, from early pioneer days to modern times, is captured in poetry, stories, letters, newspaper clippings and reminiscences. Also included are antique Christmas cards, photographs, recipes and drawings that reflect Canada`s colorful Christmas season. This is a collection to treasure for many years to come.
