When nine-year-old Sarah and her little sister, Annie, set out on their way to school on January 12, 1888, they have no idea what their day will hold. The weather's so warm they go outside to play. Suddenly, the wind turns cold and begins to roar--it's a blizzard! The wind is so strong it rips the school's roof off. What will they do? The freezing snow is already up to their knees and without a roof they'll freeze. Their teacher, Miss Freeman, ties them all together with a long rope and they head out into the blinding storm. Will they make it to safety in time?

About the Author:

Marty Rhodes Figley is the author of sixteen books, mostly about her favorite subject--remarkable people from our country's past. She earned her B.A. in American Studies from Mount Holyoke College. Marty, whose two children are grown, lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, Paul, and their Airedale terrier, Scarlett.

From Booklist:

Gr. 1-3. On an unusually warm January morning in 1888, Sarah and her little sister, Annie, walk from their prairie farmhouse to their one-room, sod schoolhouse. At lunchtime, the temperature drops and a blizzard roars in, lifting part of the roof off the school. Their teacher ties each of the 16 students to a rope and leads them to her home, half a mile through the blinding, treacherous snowstorm. In an afterword, Figley notes that during the actual Nebraska storm known as the Schoolchildren's Blizzard, "many children died on their way home from school." The realistic interplay between Sarah and Annie will draw young readers into this simple, vivid story of natural catastrophe and native courage. Haas' paintings colorfully depict the changing weather as well as shifting emotions of the characters. Printed in large type with plenty of white space, this tale from the On My Own History series makes an exciting, accessible addition to the easy-reading shelves and a prime candidate for primary-grade assignments of fiction based on natural disasters.
