The First Christmas Tree & The Story of the Other Wise Man
This illustrated edition of two heartfelt holiday fables abounds in the Yuletide traditions of generosity and friendship, perfect sentiments for a gift book. The First Christmas Tree is a tale set during an eighth-century winter festival, where a struggle ensues between foresters worshipping pagan gods and a heroic pilgrim who has come to teach about Christ's birth. In The Story of the Other Wise Man well-meaning Artaban prepares to join three fellow Magi in their journey to Judaea for the birth of a holy prince. But a needy stranger and a twist of fate will change his destiny. These timeless classics will capture the hearts of every family that loves Christmas readings.
Author Henry van Dyke was a man of considerable talents -- a Presbyterian minister, professor of English literature at Princeton University, and US ambassador to the Netherlands. But he also carved out time for writing eloquent poems, short stories, essays and several books on religion. His Christmas stories have been read and savoured by families for more than 100 years.
