SNOWCATCHER

In the winter of 1888 a ferocious blizzard rips through the prairie without warning, leaving thousands of children struggling to find their way safely home from school. Six year-old Hattie is stranded in the blizzard, somewhere between "a dream and here with me now." She is driven by a haunting vision: Her secret friend is trapped in the storm.  Hattie knows what happens to children in a blizzard. One touch from the SNOWCATCHER will turn them into ice! Will she be able to save her friend without meeting the SNOWCATCHER?
