This beautiful and unique American Christmas story belongs to all our children, for it takes place in our own Christmas city--Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Hidden in a very old book, and in the yellowed pages of old diaries, was the thrilling tale of how the children of the Moravian settlement at Nazareth, Pennsylvania, were sent to Bethlehem at Christmas time for protetion from Indians. Katherine Milhous has brought the story to light and has made it glow with color. Here is the story, told to the chidlren, of how Bethlehem was given its name; of the Christmas crib made for the children behind barricaded windows; of teh Indian attack turned aside by the music of the Christmas trombones. And if the children who read it go, some day, to Bethlehem for teh Christmas festival, they will have an experience that is rich indeed. Collectible, gift-quality first edition. 026784
