From the Inside Flap:

"'Twere Christmas Eve an' mist a-crept off the crick.
An' the col' winner drizzly was a-comin' down thick."
It's a winter night in the Ozarks, and while Maw and Paw are snoring in their beds, their son is waiting up with his dog, Arkansaw, to catch a glimpse of Saint Nick.
The second the portly man and his big pet raccoon cross the threshold, there erupts such a commotion as the holler has never seen! Arkansaw takes exception to Santy's raccoon, and quicker than you can say "By sassafrack!" the whole place is busted up. But Santy saves the day with a fine ham biscuit feast and sneaks a whole set of musical instruments into the stockings hung by the "fahrboard." After a fine backwoods jig, Santy has to git and floats into the night, saying, "Happy Christmas to all, ev'ry maw, paw, 'n tyke!"
Amanda McWilliams was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and now lives with her husband and son in Mandeville, Louisiana.
