CHRISTMAS WITH THE RURAL MAIL is a poem written by Canadian playwright Lance Woolaver, and illustrated with a selection of paintings by internationally acclaimed Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis, 1903-1970.

The art of Maud Lewis is among Canada's greatest treasures. Her creative imagination, depicted in her joyful paintings, showcases sunny scenes of idyllic rural life, filled with brilliant colours, gentle animals, and cheerful domesticity... Scenes she saw everyday from her small home in Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Maud Lewis' joyful paintings achieve a quality of emotion and beauty reached only in the greatest art. She is truly Canada's most beloved folk artist.

Fifteen paintings, one on each page, illustrate the lyrical poem of a baby's first Christmas morning and the excitement of following the journey of the presents arriving by the rural mail.
