On the empty winter prairie, gray clouds to the northwest meant only one thing: a blizzard was seconds away. The first blizzard came in October. Then it snowed almost without stopping until April. The temperature dropped to forty below zero. Snow reached the rooftops. Worst of all, no trains could get through with food and coal. The townspeople began to starve. The Ingalls family wondered if they'd make it through the winter. Finally, Almanzo Wilder knew he would have to risk his life to save the town.

The old Indian in Harthorn's store warned that the coming winter would have seven months of blizzards. The first one strikes in October, and the town of De Smet is soon snowed under. Laura and her family move to town to weather out the winter, but once the trains stop running, the food supply dwindles. When Almanz Wilder volunteers to go search for wheat, the townspeople anxiously hope that he will succeed.

Very good book. I love how you learn so much about that time's history about how they did things. I had no idea they had steam powered snowplows. It was exciting to read about Almonzo and Cap Garland's adventure they took which really helped save the town. What a rough things to go through so many months of blizzards. Makes me truly appreciate the short months of snow we get here in NJ

A Newberry Honor Book. I loved this book's description of winter/Christmas on the prairie.

This is a long book, not as enjoyable as the others in the series. It gets long when reading it aloud.

We loved all of the original Laura Ingalls Wilder books and this was probably our favorite. It told of hardship, perseverance, putting others first, self-discipline, motivation to learn, and discouraged an attitude of self-pity or laziness- just like all the Laura Ingalls books!

This is a very sad Laura book, but very loved at the same time. We really enjoyed this book (my 5 yr old said this!). We will reread all these over time because we love them so much.

Who doesn't love Laura Wilder? These classics are getting harder to find in paperback. This is a Scholastic 1968 version.
