The famous Blizzard of 1888 was the worst ever to hit the Northeast. Many people perished, and New York City was paralyzed. But to a twelve-year-old Bronx boy named Milton Daub, the storm was a call to action. On a pair of homemade snowshoes, Milton braved the elements to bring food, medicine, and supplies to many of his neighbors. Fans of Margaret Wetterer's earlier ON MY OWN adventure, Kate Shelly and the Midnight Express, will be equally entertained by this heartwarming true story.
