Editorial Reviews

Review

"Compelling tale, based on fact."—Bookmark
(Bookmark )

"A vivid portrayal of human nature."—Library Journal
(Library Journal )

"It is a most moving tale of courage and ingenuity, and we sigh with relief when the airplanes come and a doctor is the first to parachute down. Written with biting realism and deep human insight, it is a record of courage well worth preserving."—New York Herald Tribune Book Review

As a rural school teacher, I have read this short book to many classes on days when our schoolbus was late or stalled in the snow. The young Nebraska teacher and her brave students in this story survived a terrible blizzard by relying on each other; the memoir has become a read-aloud classic for me on the first winter storm of the year.

This book was really nothing special. It was so predictable the title of the book should've been,"Some Young Children Get Lost in a Storm and are Saved". This book had no excitement and i don't recomend this book to anybody.

A suspenseful and heart-warming tale of an amazing, true incident. Well-written and succinct it holds your interest to the closing word.,

Read this years ago and wanted to read it again. I could have sworn that when I read it there was more to the book explaining that it was based on a true story and that it was a worse storm than the book portrayed. Brought back memories though. Maybe my kids will want to read it. Short read.

I read this book as a child, during a major winter storm in our small Western KY town. I remember vividly reading this story and not being able to put it down, eventually reading it to my little sister and cousin as our family huddled together in our basement, close to the wood stove. It is a remarkable tale and I have re-ordered the book to read to my grandchildren this winter. It is a remarkable story that gives the reader the idea that people can live through any challenge laid before them. I would recommend this book to everyone.

This book is a survival tale with a very predictable plot. Of course, if you're a fan of blizzards and want to read a 60-page description of one, this is the book for you.
