Overall: 3 out of 5 stars
Personal Evaluation: This was another graphic novel and while the pictures did help tell the story, the author used the flashback device so many times I had trouble keeping everything straight in my head. There was some background information but in general it seemed pretty incomplete and confusing.
What might interest children: Nonfiction can be dry and the pictures and dialogue definitely help make it more interesting. Also, I guess the winter of 1877 was a rough one and started in September, though this was not explained but rather gathered from the pictures and descriptions.
