“The Beautiful Snow: The Ingalls Family, The Railroads, and the Hard Winter of 1880-81” by Minnesota author Cindy Wilson.
Cindy will be at the Ortonville Public Library on Tuesday, April 14th at 6:30 p.m. The “Beautiful Snow” weaves the historical record around and through Wilder’s fictionalized account. From the tireless efforts to dig out the railroad blockades, to lavish oyster parties, to carefully spun boosterism, The Hard Winter comes to life with extraordinary tales of survival, resilience, and defiance that adds rich context to Wilder’s beloved novel.
