101:120 The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder

My review from 2011:

This one sees the Ingalls move back into town after hearing that the winter will be harsh.  Little did anyone know exactly how harsh it would end up being and how lucky they would all be to survive.  7 months of blizzards ended up completely stopping the supply trains and leaving almost the entire town on the brink of starvation.  But it also shows the determination and fortitude of the pioneers that they not only managed to find ways to survive and grow stronger from it but they continually tried to do so with a positive attitude.  Such amazing people. 

I think that says it all.
