Coldest Day In Texas by Peggy Purser Freeman

On the coldest day in Texas--February 12, 1899--Shyanne Jones and her twin sister, Shenandoah, are snowbound, along with their teacher and Josh Paul Younger, the cutest boy in the county. After Shyanne shouts harsh words to her sister and before they are rescued, Shenandoah dies, her already frail heart weakened by the cold. When Papa deserts the family, and Mama announces the eighth baby is on its way, Shyanne's guilt turns to hopelessness. And her nervous stomach around Josh Paul can only mean love, but Josh Paul calls her "Shrimp," and snippy Priscilla Babcock decides Josh paul is her property. From blizzard to prairie fire, Christmas in February to reunion picnics in July, from the death of one child to the birth of another, from fun-filled jackrabbit hunts to a wagon trip to the Palo Duro Canyon, The Coldest Day In Texas is alive with humor and drama. And Shyanne Jones is one of the spunkiest girls ever to race through the adventures of growing up in the Texas Panhandle. TCU Press, 1-800-826-8911 ISBN 0-87565-169-0 paper $12.95
