Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a collection of poems recording the devastation unleashed on the Great Plains by the blizzard of January 12, 1888. The Blizzard Voices is based on the actual reminiscences of the survivors as recorded in documents from the time and written reminiscences from years later. Here are the haunting voices of the men and women who were teaching school, working the land, and tending the house when the storm arrived and changed their lives forever.

Synopsis:

A collection of poems written from the voices of survivors of the January 1888 Nebraska blizzard.
