212 pp, square small 8vo (7 1/2" x 7 1/2"). "Christmas a-glitter, Christmas on a shoestring, Christmas wrecked, Christmas salvaged, Christmas in the city, village and country, in church and shopping mall and barn - they 're all here, in stories by the best writers in the Maritimes and Newfoundland. Walter Learning's Christmas treat opens with 'Matthew Insists on Puffed Sleeves', from 'Anne of Green Gables'. Stars such as Alistair MacLeod and Antoine Maillet join their voices with regional favourites including Herb Curtis, Deirdre Kessler, and Helen Fogwill Porter. Goose Lane's own adaptation of David Adams Richards's screenplay 'Small Gifts' is published here for the first time. Grahame Wood's adaptation of Gordon Pinsent's pilot for the CBC-TV series ' A Gift to Last' ends this fulfilling celebration." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear, minor rubbing.
