I bought this as a Christmas present for my aunt (who is from Georgia), and she absolutely loved it! She said she couldn't believe that she had never heard of it before. So if you're looking for a gift for someone with Georgia connections, or if you just enjoy reading about different Christmas stories and traditions, I highly recommend this book!

"Christmas Stories From Georgia" is a collection of sixteen short stories written by various authors from the state of Georgia and is edited by Dorothy Dodge Robbins and Kenneth Robbins.

The book begins with a memoir from the late Lillian Smith about a Christmas during the Great Depression when her poor family invited the local chain gang to Christmas dinner. It is a delightfully written memory of a Christmas that one family made the best of and shows us what the true spirit of Christmas is all about.

Born in 1848, Joel Chandler Harris wrote "A Conscript's Christmas" in which he created a humorous tale of two Confederate soldiers, one a captain and one a private, who ride horseback up Sugar Mountain to bring back Israel Spurlock who as Private Chadwick says, "They yerked him into army an' he yerked himself out..." The two of them must bring him back to the army right at Christmas, but not before they are subjected to the local trickery.

Author Janice Daugharty from Valdosta, Georgia, offers her short story "Once a Thief." Lovie, sucking her thumb, and Sister are being moved once again out of one of The King's houses and into another of his in the quarters, all done by "wheelbar" and on Christmas Eve. Mama backs up the parade with the dogs. Going to bed hungry and without Santa Claus was nothing new, but Sister didn't think it was right for Lovie to have to suffer this on another Christmas Eve. She finds a way to make Christmas a little brighter for them all. Sister, Lovie, The Count, Mama and Uncle King appear in other stories and books by Janice Daugharty.

The book ends with Chapter 18 from the much loved "Gone With the Wind" by Margaret Mitchell.

A rather odd collection of Christmas stories. I did like a couple of them. The cover art leads you to believe it might be suitable for all ages. It isn't.
