In 1888, a blizzard came from Canada and swept across eight American states. Schoolchildren went to school one unseasonably warm winter day and found themselves trapped in their classrooms by high snow levels and strong gusts of wind. From this gripping beginning, readers learn what blizzards are, and what conditions cause them.
