Winter Thunder (Paperback)Mari Sandoz (author)
- We can order this
The exposed little group is armed with no more than the lunches they started out with and only the clothing required for a normal winter's day. As a killer storm takes hold and the mercury plunges below zero they become desperate. How each character facesthe terrifying prospect of freezing to death is a story that has become a small classic. And because it is based upon fact-the author's niece experienced much the same ordeal in the paralyzing midwestern blizzard of January 1949-it has the ring of undisputed truth.
Winter Thunder has been named by the Reader's Digest as one of the ten best American short novels.
