    Title: The Children's Blizzard

    Product Description

    Thousands of impoverished Northern European immigrants were promised that the prairie offered "land, freedom, and hope." The disastrous blizzard of 1888 revealed that their free homestead was not a paradise but a hard, unforgiving place governed by natural forces they neither understood nor controlled, and America’s heartland would never be the same.

    This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.
