The Wyoming Blizzard of 1949: Surviving the Storm Book Signing

 

 July 23rd 2018 5-6pm

"Snow, wind and frigid temperatures devastated parts of Wyoming and neighboring states in 1949. For nearly two months, towns and ranches were marooned by enormous drifts, some reportedly eighty feet tall. The storm stranded hundreds of motorists on the highways and stalled nearly two dozen trains at depots throughout the state. Communities pulled together to assist not only their neighbors but also anyone unable to escape the snowstorm. The deaths of motorists and livestock weighed heavily on the minds of Americans as news spread nationwide. Author and historian James Fuller recounts these harrowing stories of tenacity and fortitude."

 

Come out to the premiere book launch and signing of “The Wyoming Blizzard of 1949: Surviving the Storm.” James C. Fuller will give a short presentation prior to the book signing portion of the event.
