Book Overview

Swooping in over the prairie, a plump, jovial Santa parks his buckboard outside a peaceful ranch house. From boots stuffed with gifts to the faithful 'hosses' pulling his 'sleigh, ' it's a Christmas tale rich in Texas tradition and language.

Great book brings childhood memories

Great book for little "cow pokes". Leon A. Harris gave the Night Before Christmas story a really neat Texas twist. The illustrations by Meg Wohlberg are wonderful. I own a copy of this book that was printed in 1952. It is literally falling apart from so much love and reading. I bought a new one for safer handling and enjoyment by this generation and many to follow. The new book is beautifully printed and bound. It is hard back and has a dust jacket.

The best Texas Christmas book ever

I have loved this book for as long as I can remember, and have given dozens as gifts. The way the words flow, and the illustrations make this the best Texas themed Christmas book ever (in my opinion).

Night before christmasin Texas, That Is

The book was in great condition. Just what we were looking for.

A great gift to welcome new commers to Texas!

In 1968 when my parents moved to Texas they received this book as a gift. Inside the cover their friends wrote, "A few things are different in this great state. We just wanted to keep you posted. Hope ya'll are working on your accents!" Almost 50 years after its first printing this book is still delightful! It captures the image of Texas that, although not always true, has made it a famous state. This book means a lot to me, and this year I am buying a bunch of copies to give to my 7 nephews and nieces. Thanks for keeping this classic in stock.
