When Gale Buck became the 13th in the Lineage of Santa's Woodsmen, in October 2008, Nicholas agreed that his task should be to help others find the True Magic of Christmas in Everyday. Nicholas made the letters, journals, logs and personal tes of the previous eleven Woodsmen available to Gale. While assembling the Secrets of Santa revealed by his Woodsmen, a new story unfolded, the story of Nicholas. Through these stories told by the Woodsmen the man behind the legend of Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, is revealed as never before. In Finding Nicholas, readers will journey through space and time as Santa delivers gifts, merriment, and love. Every tale captures the magic of Christmas through spiritual and loving messages and can turn even the coldest souls into believers. All stories hor the traditions of Christmas from the birth of the Christ child to the lineage of Santa's reindeer. Pull a comfy chair near the fireplace, grab a steaming mug of hot chocolate, and enjoy the woodsman's messages, compiled by one of their very own. Leslie Creek
