Overview

Laura Ingalls Wilder's classic novel The Long Winter tells the riveting story of the winter of 1880-81. She wrote of three day blizzards, forty ton trains stuck in the snow, houses buried in snowdrifts and a town that nearly starved.

Was Laura's story just fiction, or was that one winter stranger than fiction? Was that winter really that bad, or was it just a typical old time winter stretched a bit to make a good tale?

Author Dan L. White examines the reality of the long, hard winter using contemporary newspaper articles, autobiographies and historical accounts of those who lived through that time to weave a fascinating story of the incredible winter of 1880-81.

Meet the Author

Dan L. White and his wife Margie settled on a farmstead in the Ozarks some years ago, just north of the Gasconade River, about 12 miles up the road from Laura’s Rocky Ridge Farm. There they homeschooled their five children and lived a quiet Ozarks country life. In 2004 they began Homeschool Helpers, doing whatever they can to encourage Christian homeschool families, holding hundreds of activities and publishing a free weekly newsletter.

Dan has authored other books about Laura Ingalls including Devotionals with Laura, Laura's Friends Remember Her, and Laura Ingalls Wilder's Most Inspiring Writings.
