WEST TEXAS CHRISTMAS STORIES Abilene Christian Christian University Press ISBN 978-0-89112-333-0 Glenn Dromgoole, former editor of the Abilene Reporter-News, edited this treasured collection of holiday stories.

Greene, Don Newbury, Jack Boyd, Betty Davis, Carlton Stowers, and many others.        ...
