About the book: The St. Nicholas referred to in the title is not Santa Claus but a magazine founded in 1873 Many sources refer to St. Nicholas as a children’s magazine but the articles and stories in this collection are not childish by modern American standards. The magazine published some of the country’s best writers including Louisa May Alcott, Laura Richards, Mark Twain, Joel Chandler Harris and Frances Hodgson Burnett. Among the noted authors who first published in the magazine were F. Scott Fitzgerald and E.B. White.
This collection contains many articles and a few stories. Among the articles are one about alligators and one about catching terrapins. There are also articles about New Orleans, St Augustine, an earthquake at Charleston, S.C. and American rivers. The St. Augustine article reads as though it was placed by the chamber of commerce or a tourist bureau. One of the better stories is The Watermelon Stockings by Alice Caldwell Hegan about a disobedient but brave little girl. Another is The Creature With No Claws by Joel Chandler Harris.
