The man, the myth, the living legend, Santa tells his story. S: Memoir of an Iconic Gentleman is a first-person account of the life and evolution of Nicholas of Patera, born in 270 AD, who evolves over time, becoming the iconic figure we know as Santa Claus. During his long life, Nicholas meets many historical figures. Emperor Constantine, King Arthur, Leonardo da Vinci, Martin Luther, Abraham Lincoln, and Robert Perry are but a few who help tell his tale. Each adventure in Raymond S. Edge’s book explains a Christmas tradition or explores a life lesson, it is Santa in historical context. And it’s his opportunity to finally set the story straight — as an example, he at no time or place ran over anyone’s grandmother.
