Contents: American writer, poet and clergyman Henry Van Dyke was born in 1852 in Germantown, in the State of Pennsylvania. His father was a member of the Presbyterian church and, as a minister, was the main influence on the young Van Dyke in his formative years. As well as two nationally known stories for Christmas, The Other Wise Man and The First Christmas Tree, he was a writer who was popular for a wide range of poetry that explored various aspects of religion and man’s relationship to nature.
This book contains a selection of 36 of Van Dyke's poems.
