An Indiana Christmas
by Bryan Furuness




Overview -

Imagine a moonlit railroad track, a rural road and barn covered with just a dusting of snow, a hound dog asleep by the woodstove, and a Red Ryder BB gun hidden behind the tinseled tree--all the makings of an unforgettable Indiana Christmas. In An Indiana Christmas, editor Bryan Furuness brings together timeless short stories, poems, plays, and letters to help you get into the holiday spirit. Lose yourself in classics like In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd, which inspired the beloved movie A Christmas Story, and A Feel in the Christmas Air by James Whitcomb Riley, along with more recent literary works like The Myth of the Perfect Christmas Photo Family by Kelsey Timmerman and While Mortals Sleep by famed Indiana writer Kurt Vonnegut. To achieve the perfect combination of Christmas nostalgia and cheer, Furuness has curated Hoosier stories that allow you to experience an idyllic holiday gathering in Indiana Winter by Susan Neville, feel the excitement of a child on Christmas Eve with Earthbound by Barbara Shoup, and face the loneliness of a drifter on Christmas night in Howard Garfield, Balladeer by Edward Porter. The collection even offers the chance to read a Christmas war dispatch from the late, great Hoosier journalist Ernie Pyle. Heartfelt and unique, An Indiana Christmas paints a picture of what Hoosiers truly hold dear. Family, love, giving, hope, and faith shine through these poignant stories, which are sure to put you in good spirits for the holidays.
