The Return of the Light : Twelve Tales from around the World for the Winter Solstice

Edwards, Carolyn McVickar

Celebrating the solstices -- particularly the moment of the sun's return at midwinter, on December 21 -- is a nearly universal human urge, one that dates back thousands of years and has been identified in a wide variety of cultures. Now The Return of the Light makes an ideal companion for all who carry on this tradition, no matter what their faith. Twelve stories -- from North America, China, Scandinavia, India, Africa, South America, Europe, and Polynesia -- honor this moment, helping to renew our wonder of the miracle of rebirth and the power of transition from darkness into light.
