Description
 
Traces the evolution of one of the greatest cults of modern times -- the rise of Santa Claus from his origins in Byzantine Turkey to his role as the jolly man who grants every childís wish. Tells a  story of religious worship and strife, cultural interpretation, and mass commercialization framed by a modern-day voyage in Santaís footsteps. St. Nicholas, as Santa was originally known, lived and worked in Myra, on the southern coast of Turkey, 1700 years ago. He became a revered figure in the Orthodox and Catholic churches. Seal launches his quest for Santaís true lineage -- one that takes him through present-day Turkey, Italy, Holland, England, America, and finally Finland as he pieces together the history of this man-to-myth transformation. Illus.
