From the publisher: "The Little Saints - the Santons of Provence: this book tells their enchanting story. It tells how these tiny, hand-molded figures of clay, gaily and expertly painted, steeped in lore and tradition, for hundreds of years have brought the magic of Christmas into every Provencal home at Christmastime. . . . Daniel J. Foley, a Santon enthusiast and owner of a remarkable collection of figures, has written an immensely interesting book. Here in the little-known customs of simple people who live close to the soil is a fresh, moving approach to the Christmas story."
