Mr Alleman puts together anecdotes from persons who lived through the series of blizzards of the title. The very extreme weather rated as the worst set of blizzards in the history of the region. The plight of the people and animals plus the first local and eventually national government relief efforts makes a tense tale.

This was a very interesting book. I had kind of a hard time following everyone's different stories but it definitely put the suffering people went through into perspective.

I got cold just reading this book: 38 inches of snow, winds 60+ mph, sub zero temps!

Thank goodness for my central furnace and electric blanket.

In the hands of someone like Timothy Egan, this could have been a really phenomenal book.
Very interesting. Can hardly imagine what those people went through.
