Product Description

For seventy years, the little settlement of Fries, Virginia had rested peacefully on the space God had scooped out of the banks of New River. Past adversities; the Great Depression of the 30's, the devastating Flood of '40, the infamous Theater Murder in '43 had all been overcome. None thought were going to compare to the disconsolation due to the events preceding the Christmas of '69.First came a hotly contested mayoral election between the suit Mill superintendent and the blue collar Mill worker that finished in a tie, starting a boil that would continue to fester. Then the final blow to the town occurred when the corporate big wheels not only abruptly closed the Mill just before Christmas, but Scrooged the employees out of their annual bonus and free ham. It took an angel named Suzie and a Santa Claus named Sam, to remind the town of the true reason for the season. Together, they brought back the Wildcat Spirit of Christmas Past, restoring optimism to a town that had sunken into despair. For those of you who have never experienced it, learn what a country southern Christmas of the sixties was all about.. Price: $17.96
