Texas Christmas Tales Book



Texas Christmas Tales Book

Texas Christmas Tales A trove of Memorable, True Texas Stories of the Christmas Season – Including works by O. Henry and John Henry Faulk – And published with an affordable $8.95 price to make nifty, and readable, stocking stuffers. The Collection includes both Fiction and Non-fiction with some Short Stories dating back more than 100 years while others are set in Today’s Lone Star State. They include Faulk’s childhood remembrance that was broadcast annually for years on National Public Radio.  O. Henry’s “A Chaparral Christmas Gift” might be to South Texas what his famous “Gift of the Magi” is to New York City, but funnier and written toward the end of his career. The anthology includes “The Golden Shadows Old West Museum,” an Award-winning Short Story by Journalist and Baylor University Professor Mike Blackman, which Larry L. King reworked as a play. Blackman also created “ The Night the Wise Men Sucker-Punched the Elf” – Under deadline pressure, but it doesn’t show. Jerry Flemmons won a State Journalism Award for his moving East Texas Story about a child’s doll. His colleague, Frank Perkins, reaches back into his own childhood about a winter when his father was away at war and his step-grandfather stepped in to give him his best Christmas gift ever. Aside from these Stories, the Collection includes Larry Chittenden’s nostalgic poem, “Cowboy Christmas Ball,” about an annual gathering of ranchers and cowpokes in Anson, just north of Abilene, which continues to this day.
