REVIEW: Blizzard: The Storm That Changed America

book cover of Blizzard: The Storm That Changed America
This is a nonfiction account of the blizzard of March 1888, which affected pretty much the entire East Coast from North Carolina to Maine. Murphy chooses several individuals in a variety of locations (but most in New York City) to illustrate the ways in which the storm affected people’s lives. I enjoyed the book, although I would have liked a bit more development of the “storm that changed America” bit. It’s there, but sort of tucked in at the end like an afterthought.
