Pulitzer Prize winning poet Robert P. Tristram Coffin’s 1941 depiction of the perfect Maine Christmas describes a farmhouse "banked with emerald jewels clustered on bayberry boughs," stuffed with aunts, uncles, and cousins by the cart load, with mince pies by the legion. You will feel like one of the family as he brings you along to play with cousins in the hay chaff, take a bouncy afternoon sled ride, savor the goose during the three-hour meal, string popcorn for the tree, and listen to tales by firelight at the drowsy end of a long and perfect day. Paired with gorgeous and evocative original woodblock prints by Maine artist Blue Butterfield, this edition will be a keepsake book, one to read aloud year after year to remind ourselves of the true meaning of the holidays.

Born in 1892 in Brunswick, Maine, Robert Peter Tristram Coffin attended Bowdoin College and Princeton University. He taught at Wells College in New York before returning to Bowdoin in 1934, where he taught until his death in 1955. A prolific writer and popular speaker who drew inspiration from his time spent on a saltwater farm in Maine, he published more than three dozen works of prose and poetry. His book, Strange Holiness, won the 1936 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. Christmas in Maine was first published in 1941.
