What a delightful Christmas story.  Oswald T. Campbell leaves Chicago behind for the warmer climes of Alabama, Lost River, in particular.  His doctor has highly recommended Oswald do this or risk an early death.  The mild mannered Oswald ties up loose ends and heads south, convinced it’ll be his last Christmas.  Drinking and smoking are his demise.  Yet – the warmer weather, good food cooked by his new landlady and a host of caring neighbors bring him around.  At the heart of this tale is a red bird named Jack, a young girl named Patsy and some big-hearted friends, intent on helping each other survive.  As the book cover declares and I agree – “Once you experience the wonder, you too will never forget A Redbird Christmas.”
