6 Gary Krist The White Cascade The Great Northern Railway Disaster and America's Deadliest Avalanche
Henry Holt Publishing 2007 0805077057 / 9780805077056 Hardcover New New 
Trapped in the high cascades by a massive blizzard, two trains are swept off a precipice by the deadliest avalanche in American history. This tale begins in 1910 in the midst of a blizzard sweeping across the Pacific Northwest. Two trains are attempting to cross the Cascade Mountains on their way to Seattle. Near the crest, they are forced to stop. The delay extends to 4 days when the passengers who are increasingly trapped by snow begin to hear the sound of avalanches rumbling in the mountains. To save them, the railway marshals an army of men. But, in the unrelenting storm and with food supplies dwindling, the snow shovelers go on strike. The passengers are sick, exhausted and terrified. On the sixth night a thunderstorm begins to rage and soon the snowfield above the trains begins to collapse. Historically accurate and incredibly riveting, this account is a masterpiece of narrative history.
