The Christmas Tree Ship

The Christmas Tree Ship - Carol Crane, Chris Ellison A childhood memory recreated as a Christmas fable. Based on an actual event, it is the story of Captain Santa and the Christmas Tree Ship, and the annual delivery Christmas trees to Chicago docks, until a storm in 1912 sinks the ship and all it's cargo. The Christmas Tree Ship celebrates the art of storytelling and the warm and loving memories it creates, as well as the power of regional holiday legends. Evocative illustrations by Chris Ellison.
