The claim shanty wasn't strong enough to keep out blizzards, and if they were snowed up there, far from help, they might freeze or starve. The shops in town were full of supplies; and if their stocks ran out, the trains would bring more. But when winter came, the blizzards raged and screamed over the town. When Laura woke in the mornings, she heard the terrifying noise of the storm, and every nail in the planks above her head was thick with frost. There were no trains. Soon there was no oil for the lamps, no fuel for the stove. Laura's family lived on coarse brown bread, made from corn ground in the little coffee mill. They burnt hay; and Ma made a button lamp that gave a tiny light. It was May before the snow melted, and the first train got through. On it was the Ingalls' Christmas turkey, still frozen stiff. What a dinner that was!Hide synopsis

I first read this book when my daughter was 13 and she was reading the LEW books and wanted me to read it so she would have someone to talk to about it. I read it then and reread it just now and was very impressed with it both times. I think this book offers a wonderful insight into just how difficult ...
A heart rending tale of hardship, endurance, perserverance and love. I am so glad that laura Ingalls Wilder shared her experiences and hardships in book form. I have nothing but respect for those who settled the west. This is a great read.
The Long Winter is a remarkable, true story of the best and worst traits in man when he is tested to his limits. It is told from the viewpoint of a young girl. I had not read long into the book, when I realized this girl was different. She saw the world through the eyes of an artist. She saw the ...
