The Schoolhouse Blizzard
On January 12, 1888, Tommy and Carrie Carter start their day like any other school day. As they work their sums, practice reading, and enjoy their friends, a major blizzard is brewing. When the storm suddenly hits their small Nebraska town, all the children are caught in the schoolhouse! As the schoolhouse begins to fall apart, their teacher, Miss Penny, only has two choices for herself and the fifteen scared children: stay in the schoolhouse and freeze or brave the storm on foot to find warmth and safety.
