Survival in the wintertime in the lofty areas of the Rocky Mountains is always stressful, but especially so when a blizzard sweeps down from the heights, covering the food sources and locking nearly all the creatures in bitter cold and deep smothering whiteness.
Sensing the weather change, some animals seek shelter prior to the storm, while others are caught in it. All are hungry—some desperately so.
The deep snow gives some animals an advantage, while to others it brings a frightening vulnerability to their enemies.
A true-to-life portrayal of the interaction of some of God's wild creatures in the western Rockies—the bighorn sheep, the marten, the cony, the mule deer, the weasel, and the mountain lion, to name a few.
The story covers only three days, but to the wild creatures—to those held captive by the storm, as well as to those who must venture out into it to try to satisfy their gnawing hunger—the time seems very long indeed.
There is plenty of fear, suspense, and trauma among the wild folk—for the hunted as well as for the hunter—which will hold the interest of both young and old readers.
Truly God's plan for a care of each of His creatures is marvelous.
Another well-written and captivating story by the writer of All on a Mountain Day.
