Jeanette Winter, whose My Name is Georgia was a Publishers Weekly Best Book among other accolades, lives in Pipe Creek, Texas.From Booklist:
Ages 4-6. A refreshing and unpretentious Christmas story set in the late nineteenth century, this is based on an actual historical happening. Winter relates the tale of a young schooner captain who traveled treacherous Lake Michigan each year at Christmas to supply Chicagoans with spruce trees for their holiday celebrations. When his boat was lost during one particularly bad winter, his wife and family chose to honor his memory and celebrate the holiday by continuing the tradition he started. Winter's polished, signature folk-art style is well-suited to the plain telling, with the richness of her colors--crystal clear blues, deep oranges, and royal purples--supplying both drama and a glowing warmth.
