A homesteading farmer, his pregnant wife, their daughter, and the grandmother wake to a beautiful winter morning on the prairie. And then it descends upon them - the infamous Children's Blizzard of 1888. Who will survive?
With characters from Rosette: A Novel of Pioneer Michigan, "Blizzard: A Story of Dakota Territory" captures in one sod shanty the dramatic effects of a storm on the bodies and spirits of people who have internal storms of their own.
"I loved 'Blizzard,' as I loved Rosette. The link to the actual Children's Blizzard [is] fascinating! . . . [Marsch has] given Rosette such life . . ."
"[The storm is] gripping and tense . . . awesome and God-awful."
"A new standard in survival stories."
