The storm came out of nowhere...
Eleven-year-old John Hale has already survived one brutal Dakota winter, and now he's about to experience one of the deadliest blizzards in American history. The storm of 1888 was a monster, a frozen hurricane that slammed into America's Midwest without warning. Within hours, hundreds would be dead, thousands terrified, lost, and freezing.
John's inner strength is seriously tested when he finds himself trapped in the blinding snow, the wind like a giant crushing hammer pounding him over and over again. Will John ever find his way home?
