Praise

“Wrap yourself up in a blanket and get ready to be transported into one of the most astonishing tragedies you’ve never heard of—a massive blizzard that devastated the lives of prairie homesteaders in 1888. Melanie Benjamin draws you into the lives, hardships, and triumphs of a diverse cast of characters and compels you to care about them deeply. The Children’s Blizzard has a pulse-pounding pace, a giant heart, and a sweep as wide as the prairie itself.”—Elizabeth Letts, New York Times bestselling author of Finding Dorothy
 
“In The Children’s Blizzard, Melanie Benjamin walks readers through the harrowing story of a stunning storm—one that took the lives of many and forever changed the lives of countless others. Benjamin has a gift for opening up and fleshing out her characters, giving readers unfettered access into their hearts and minds as they fight to survive, first on the punishing prairie lands they have decided to make home, and then during and after this historic tragedy. Beautiful and haunting, this is a story of ordinary people forced to face the most extraordinary of moments.”—Allison Pataki, New York Times bestselling author of The Queen’s Fortune
