Item description for Blizzard of the Millennium by C. Gordon Wilson...
Overview Product Description January, 1852. Dan Forbes leads a wagon train westward to San Francisco, California, from St. Louis, Missouri. Dan has successfully led previous mid-winter trips. Unbeknownst to Dan, this trip will be quite different. Dan leads the pioneers westward and provides protection from Indians and outlaws, but the elements present a factor that Dan can't control. A blizzard strikes, and the wagon train is caught. The ordeal that follows tests the courage of the human spirit when faced with adversity. Faith in God proves to be their lifeline during the mammoth snowstorm. Their delivery from the blizzard is nothing short of miraculous. The Cheyenne Indians become part of this miracle in a most amazing way. Dan's relationship with the remarkable widow, Sara Johnson, grows amidst these challenging circumstances. C. Gordon Wilson lives in the suburban Maryland area with his wife, Lisa. They have been married twenty-six years, and are long-time members of Fourth Presbyterian Church. Gordon has had a lifelong interest in reading and writing. He graduated from Duke University, with honors, garnering a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. He then embarked on a nine-year teaching career. Working with his students, he developed and refined his own writing abilities, helping to prepare him to write his first novel, Blizzard of the Millennium. Gordon has also been a high school varsity basketball referee for twenty-two years. He has worked in the printing business and as a research analyst for fifteen years. Gordon hopes his book will inspire his readers to walk by faith and to find encouragement and godly examples of perseverance in its pages.

Great book for everyone! May 7, 2009
I thoroughly enjoyed Gordon's book. I have been camping off and on since I was 12 years old through pouring down rains and even a tornado, but never a snow blizzard.
His book was hard to even put down and do something else. I read it off and on and finished it in 7 hours, which is good for me.
He made you feel like you were right there during the whole story, on the trail, in the caves, and out in the snow. I read some of it while we were having our own snowstorm. It has the adventure of traveling in the wilderness.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure and romance.
