Combining fiction and non-fiction, this dramatic story set in the snowy backwoods follows the Robertson family as they prepare for Christmas in 1841. They are excitedly expecting visitors from afar but as a winter storm begins to rage, the family fears for the safety of the travellers. How will Andrew and Sophie - with a baby on the way - fare on such a dangerous journey?

Each chapter of the story is enhanced by information about the pioneer period and how Christmas was celebrated in the past. Children will learn about holiday traditions in more detail through crafts, games, songs and other activities. Even 150 years ago, Christmas was a special time.
