On December 29, 2007, a fierce blizzard hit Olympia National Park in Washington State. Cross-country skier Randy Kraxberger, traveling alone, was caught by himself in the severe winter storm. Park rangers knew they had to save the lost skier. Could their daring rescue effort succeed through blinding snow, high winds, freezing temperatures, and the threat of avalanches? Eyewitness accounts and incredible photos bring to life the experiences of ordinary people who faced catastrophic danger--and lived to tell their stories. Kids will discover the causes and characteristics of blizzards and learn about scientific advances in storm prediction. Safety tips show young readers how to stay out of harm's way during a blizzard.
