This is the touchng true story of "Captain Santa" Captain Herman Schuenemann who risked and ultimately gave his life to spread Christmas joy. True, at the time of his last voyage he was in dire need of money but in my heart I truly believe his main motivation was to make sure there were Christmas trees for all who desired them. The books I read were The Historic Christmas Tree Ship by Rochelle M. Pennington and the children's version The Christmas Tree Ship: The Story of Captain Santa by the same author. Every year the weather channel shows the story of the Christmas Tree Ship and it's well worth your time. I always end up in tears.
