I was at Spalding Nebraska and fourteen '14' years old. We lived seven '7' miles south east of Spalding in the HILLS. Charlie Wineberger owned the farm. I could crawl out my second floor window onto the snow on the south side of the house. A dozer operator brought his dozer to make a path for the cattle could get feed. He was from Michigan or somehwere in that area. A horse was no good as they would sink in the snow and get stuck. The dozer slide sideways while my brother was on it. He jumped off but the dozer went off a hill into the ditch. The operator turned it sideways as it went over so it went down backwards. All we could see was the snow kicked up by the fan. I had a Sears pair of skis and could go mile s without stopping as the fences were all covered. The law says people can go across peoples property to get to town and other places. My Father took hold of the Bulls ring in his nose and led him into the barn, His eyes were frozen shut and was gentle. When his eyes melted open he sure went wild and we had to open the doors and let him out. This should be in ever school library. No school, mail or groceries. RexWas this review helpful?

Blizzard 1949, is a really great book. I think it's great because of all the information that you can find in it. The book even tells how many livestock and people died that winter. I would reccomend this book to anyone who likes a good cold and snowy day. The stories of all the people acrost the midwest that starved and died that winter make you realize how good you have it. This book was really great!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
