About this title


Henning and John are ice fishing on a remote arm of Ontario’s Lake of the Woods. Henning invited John along because he thinks John once saved his life. John knew better but savors martyrdom. When things turn worse than the worst-case scenario, John tries to distract Henning from potential fumbles by coaxing Henning to tell about his youthful Christmases. Henning’s stories, one per year from 1944 through 1960, are humorous portrayals of growing up in the ‘40s and ‘50s at Barstuhl, North Dakota. To distract himself from the fumbles Henning still achieves, John keeps a logbook. The logbook provides story backgrounds and displays John’s growing contempt for the hapless Henning. The men are cut off by missteps and technical failures in a blinding snowstorm. As the storm rages, the peril of their situation and the men’s antagonism grow, but the bleakness of the humor flourishes.
