Overview

This clever, Texas-style tale has entertained audiences for more than forty years. A Western Santa Claus-decked out in Levis, a ten-gallon Stetson, a cowboy vest, and with a bandana around his neck-makes his Christmas journey on a buckboard piled high with presents.
Swooping in over the prairie to the amazement of sleepy residents and jackrabbits alike, a plump, jovial Santa parks his buckboard outside a peaceful ranch house. From boot-stuffing gifts to the faithful "hosses" pulling his "sleigh," this is a Christmas tale rich in Texas tradition.
Written by Leon A. Harris and illustrated in full color by Meg Wohlberg, this festive story ropes in the spirits of Christmas and Texas while kindling readers' imaginations.
