Description:

Rabbit Fires by Siddie Joe Johnson. Published by Highland Press, Boerne, TX, 1951. 1st Stated Edition. Paperback, Paper DJ. Oblong. Condition: Nr Fine in Chipped DJ. Sm tear in DJ at top front flap, price clipped. Book in excellent condition. 32 Pgs. Every Easter, for more than a 100 years, the Easter fires have burned on the hills that surround the town of Fredericksburg, Texas. It is the Easter Rabbit and his helpers, the older people say, boiling flower-dyes to color the eggs to fill the Easter nests that the children make of grass and flowers. This is the story a pioneer Mother told her frightened children on seeing these fires and thinking they were Indian camp fires. Against this background, and against the background of the German customs of the people of Fredericksburg, the author has woven a delicate fantasy of springtime and childhood, a story of and for the age when, as the Rabbit whose name was Oster says, ''It is the time to believe.'' Children's story, illustrated by Emilie Toepperwein. Description text copyright 2007 BooksForComfort. Item ID 13764. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description The Highland Press, [1951]., Boerne, 1951. First edition. First edition. 6" x 9" oblong in plain yellow wrappers with pictorial dust jacket. 32 pages. Artwork by Emilie Toepperwein. Early children's story set in Fredericksburg, Texas, at Easter time. "The story goes that in the very early days a family of pioneer children were frightened on Easter Eve by seeing Indian campfires on the hills. Their mother quieted them. Oh, no! she said, not Indian fires, but rabbit fires burned there outside the town. The Easter Rabbit was coloring his eggs, she said, with kettles of flower-dye boiling above the flames they saw." From that day forward, there have been fires lighting the town of Fredericksburg on Easter Eve. A lovely little book, printed on light orange, light pink and yellow pastel paper with charming illustrations. Former owner's name neatly written on front free end paper and with very light bleeding to edges of both covers in lightly soiled dust jacket with light water stain to rear panel and with splitting to creases of dust jacket flap folds. Very good. Seller Inventory # 35861
