Pierre Berton was a journalist, television personality, and one of Canada’s most prolific historians. He wrote about the Klondike gold rush, the Dionne quintuplets, the Great lakes and Canada’s wartime experiences. The Slow Destruction of Harvey J. Grebe captures a Canadian tradition that may be drawing to an end: the writing and mailing of Christmas cards, along with the collecting of cards from friends from the box outside your door.     Written by Pierre Berton and read by Bill Dow, this is The Slow Destruction of Harvey J. Grebe
