Description

With his powerful and intriguing narrative style, Newbery Honor Book author Jim Murphy tells the harrowing story of the Blizzard of 1888.

On March 12, 1888, the skies from Virginia to Maine turned an angry gray, and snow began to fall. Long–range weather forecasts didn't exist at the time, so no one knew that a howling white monster was about to strike.

Snow began falling over New York City. All around town, people struggled along slippery streets and sidewalks — some seeking the warmth of their homes, some to get to work or to care for the less fortunate, and some to experience what they assumed would be the last little snowfall of one of the warmest winters on record. What no one realized was that in a very few hours, the wind and snow would bury the city in nearly 21 inches of snow and bring it to a standstill.
