THE BIG SNOW: Christmas at Jacoby's Corner

Email this review


Companion place to Jacoby's Corners (1940) in a nostalgic, thinly fictionized story of a visit paid by young Lamuel to his grandparents from Thanksgiving to Christmas. The big snow came and kept him there for the early winter activities, the butchering, country school, stories and yarning, reminiscences of the old times, in the Old Country, parties, visits, incidents of family and friends, all building up to the Christmas celebration and the big thaw, when Lemuel returns to his parents. Hearty, full-flavored looking backwards.
