Christmas for a DollarIt’s the Great Depression, and the Kamp family has struggled since Mrs. Kamps death. The older children do their best to take care of the family, but the younger children, Hopalong Cassidy fan Norman, and straight talking little Ruthie struggle with a bleak looking future. Now, with their father facing mounting debts resulting from Norman’s battle with polio, the siblings expect a Christmas without presents. But when father scrapes together a dollar to use for gifts, things change. As each child comes up with a special gift to give another member of the family, they soon begin to see many of their dearest wishes come true. Perhaps a boy who struggles to walk can become a real cowboy after all.
