The Christmas Coat: Memories of My Sioux Childhood

The Christmas Coat: Memories of My Sioux Childhood

  • $9.95


Virginia’s old coat is too small. The cold South Dakota wind blows across the Rosebud Indian Reservation, making her shiver as she walks to school. Virginia dreams of a new coat arriving in the Theast boxes-parcels of clothing from churches in “The East”. But, so her family chooses last, and as Mama always say, “The others need it more than we do.” Generosity and unexpected joy remind Virginia of the importance of community within this story from the author’s childhood.
