The season is Christmas, the place a remote Michigan farm during the Great  Depression, and the miracles are many and wondrous, from a city boy's  initiation into the marvels of nature to a thrilling journey that leads to  a strange encounter with an ancestor long dead. A Christmas Gift is a  remembrance of America's past and of the love, sacrifice, and devotion  that unite four generations of a remarkable family. On a stormy Christmas  Eve...

This fine story was made into a CBS TV-Movie in 1978 titled 'A Christmas  To Remember', starring Joanne Woodward, Jason Robards, and Eva Marie  Saint.

"A genuine Christmas story...Warm with human goodness and love." Christian  Science Monitor

"Glendon Swarthout has written a touching tale for the entire family. It's  short and simply written, and its message is clear: Christmas is love and  miracles, though small, do happen." Pam Brown, Macon, Georgia Telegraph  and News

"All the virtues we associate with Christmas are present -- love, faith,  and miracles. It is a gentle tale that could bring tears to the eyes of a  couple of generations who will recall life in that long ago, far-away  time." Chattanooga, Tennessee Times
