In early August it was hard to believe that wind and snow and ice could ever drive the sun out of the sky, wither the grass and freeze the pond.

The pioneers that settled the midwestern prairies were tough, they were determined, they had faith. Charles Ingalls and his family were of this breed and blood but even they found this Dakotan winter a challenge, the long winter that seemed as if it would never end.
