Leon Hale s well-known gift for warmth and humor finds the ideal subject in this personal recollection of the Christmases he has known throughout his long life. Whether Hale is scrambling to put together a new toy for his children on Christmas Eve, making an unscheduled visit to his own aging parents, or reliving his family s fraught holiday on a hardscrabble sheep farm during the Great Depression, the unique sensibility that has endeared him to generations of readers shines through every word. These are stories to savor by oneself or to read out loud to loved ones of all ages during the holiday season, when we discover again in our own memories the reasons why this time of year is so special.

First printed in a limited version in 1984, One Man s Christmas has been expanded with new material and illustrations for this edition. For ordering info please see the Press Release

As she writes, When a woman is down on her knees, let s all stand up and make sure she can stand straight again. Every woman in the world deserves respect and a chance to be who she wants to be!
