KIRKUS REVIEW

In a word--there aren't many here--this, handed down by Gallico's great-grandmother, returns to 1752 when Jasper Adams and his young wife Dorcase, ailing after delivering a child, are captured by Indians in the ""Algonkin territory"" who give them the ""gift of life"" after hearing about the original nativity. A little leatherstocking bootee to be hung under the tree and just about the shortest greatest story ever told.
