The Christmas Drum (from the Twelve Tales of a Tullyport Christmas Collection)

The twelve stories follow the Tully family - along with other founding members of Tullyport, colonial town on the Coast of Maine - as they bring traditions from their various homelands and mix them together into a perfect American Tradition.

In this first story, Francis Tully and his family leave Northern Ireland and arrive in colonial Maine in 1760 to see rocky shores, white pines and great possibility. They bring some clothes, some tools and an Irish frame drum that Francis insists will bring others together – to live, work and celebrate together.
