This is a very beautiful story, the movie version did not stay true to the book, in fact it was a disappointment after reading the book.

The reader has the sense of being in the wilderness with Jasper Adams and Dorcas and understanding how difficult it was for them to make a life. When they are captured by the Algonquin Indians and walking in the snow you feel the cold and pain. When Jasper begins to tell the story of the miracle the reader listens as well and is also touched. It is a very special book.
This is a well written book. It's great for kids of ALL ages. I got it and read it, it was so good that I couldn't put it down. It is a good read.
It would be a great Christmas gift, as it deals with Christmas.
This book is the one that the movie by the same title, starring Kris Kristofferson was made from. But they are very different. I like the movie version better, but the book was a nice story and would be a good one to read at Christmas time.
I have loved Paul Gallico always. I wasn't aware of this brief story and it was too bad it was so small
Very happy this was a gift .

Sounded like a good book to read. Starts out with the author who sits near the fireplace on Christmas eve, a story told by his grandmother.
Indians that lived near colony of Plymouth and the party as they moved along with a family of white people. They reach a circle of deer and the religious meaning of the birth of Christ is upon them.
The man explains about the star and the other aspects of the birth.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
