Snowbound Stagecoach    By Lenora Whiteman

At least two men dead, two more lost in a blizzard, and a half-dozen more men with frostbite, perhaps facing amputations … How did a simple stagecoach
ride from Walla Walla, Washington Territory to Dalles City, Oregon become a nightmare? How could men who each carried a fortune in gold end up walking through a blizzard? And how did a brave pioneer wife bring her son and her nephew safely through isolated weeks on scant rations and with a dwindling firewood supply? Find out in this fact-based account of the terrible blizzard of 1862.
