Publisher Description

"Well-researched, well-written, and highly engaging"

- National Review


Here is the dramatic story of the Blizzard of 1888, which caused havoc up and down the East coast of the United States. Award-winning author Mary Cable recreates - in all its human and natural drama - the three-day debacle that began on the night of Sunday, March 11, 1888. We meet the heroes and villains alike as they struggle through the mounting snow and icy winds to keep the wheels of civilization from grinding to a halt. The Blizzard of 88 is a moving and dramatic history in the tradition of David McCullough's classic The Johnstown Flood.

Great personal touches added to every story.

I thought this was going to be a story based on the blizzard of 88 and not a gleaned work from other sources. All the facts were from other authors. Could have had more background of the principal players of the era!

Blizzard

A fascinating account of the March blizzard of 1888 telling of the hardships, survivals, and travails that were experienced during one of the worst blizzards in New York and the eastern seaboard history .
Captivating.
