A Captured Santa Claus

by Thomas Nelson Page

Mr. Page has caught the spirit of his theme and set it to paper in a way that shows that the old god of Christmas is more than a myth to him. Every incident of the little tale is delightful and natural; full of a wholehearted sympathy and tenderness that must carry its readers with it.The scene of the story is laid in Virginia during the latter half of the Civil War, and brings with it the inevitable plantation, the blue and the gray uniforms, the spies, and the camp-fires, which Mr. Page has already made familiar through his other writings. But somehow they are different from those we know so well. In spite of touches of pathos, there is an atmosphere of cheerfulness about everything, from the blazing camp-fire to the freezing sentinel on the porch, that is harmonious with the spirit of Christmas and all that it means and brings. In thought, treatment, choice of words, and illustrations, " A Captured Santa Claus " is an ideal holiday book.
