We have read the Born on Snowshoes book by Evelyn Shores. My 12 and 10 year olds loved it! Some passages were a bit saddening for them though. They will be keeping an eye on our northeastern Ohio winter temperatures to find out how cold 87 degrees below zero is and if they've really had frost bite or not. I wish I could find more books like this to keep their interest and yet be clean and down to earth!

Hi sturd thanks for your interesting comment (nearly 7 years later!!!).
Recently I decided to google Evelyn Shores, found out she died not long ago and her siblings seem disinterested in her past, I wish I researched earlier to track her down and ask her some questions.
I don't think I could endure long periods of minus degree cold, I would drive people mad with my whining and moaning about the cold.
