    Great children's fable about Christmas in a remote lumber camp in late 1800s

    The Christmas Canoe

    This is a (ostensibly) Children's story written by Shelly Posen and illustrated by Magdalene Carson. The setting is a lumber camp in the vicinity of the Ottawa River in the late 1800s.

    Last week, I discovered a great U-tune video where the audio is of Shelly reading the book in the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield Quebec before an audience and the video is created by scanning the art in the book.
    I loved the story, the art, and the performance so much that I ordered four books.

    By the way, the artist has done a great job of capturing the lumber camp environment around the Ottawa River in the late 1800s. The bunkhouse is exactly like the bunkhouses the lumberjacks lived in then (although quite a bit cleaner).

    I have no connection with Shelly, Magdalene, or the book publishers.

    Here is a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpUku8Xvlqk

    I am bumping this because, as Frank said, the video is really worth seeing (and it appears that very few folks have noticed it).

    And, the best time to see it is Christmas Eve.
