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.
