Miracles await the reader in this instant West
Virginia classic by the poet laureate of West Virginia, Marc Harshman, and the
gifted painter, Cecy Rose. Every page reveals a new glimpse of Santa coming to
the mountains with his sleigh and reindeer.
You do not have to be a West
Virginian to enjoy this book, but natives will certainly recognize iconic
scenes featuring such familiar sights as the State Capitol, Green Bank
Observatory and Blackwater Falls.
Cecy Rose has crafted magnificent illustrations
to complement the story that add their own rich layer of visual storytelling to
Harshmanâ€™s compelling voice. With poetic stanzas, each of which teases us with
the coming arrival of Santa Claus, this is sure to become a keepsake volume for
children of all ages.
