From the Publisher
Editors Note Nothing says Christmas like a gorgeously decorated Christmas tree, and the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in New York City says it magnificently. During holiday season, crowds flock to Rockefeller Center to gaze at a towering evergreen, arrayed in twinkling lights and colorful ornaments. But the tree didn't grow there! One year, tugboat captain George Matteson and his wife and daughter traveled by tug to fetch the giant tree. This picture book tells the story of their real-life journey, and James Ransome's striking paintings capture the excitement of the trip and the pride of the young girl who helped steer the tug into New York Harbor.
