Read by Nick Mondelli
When a blizzard traps a family outside during a whiteout, a nearby cattle dog rescues them.
"Rosen portrays the dog's attempts to save the family so astutely that readers will feel the dog's determination and exhaustion, and his somber, parsed descriptions of the blizzard and the family's subsequent disorientation in the whiteout bring their cold and fear close...A fine, superbly illustrated tale of adventure, bravery, and loyalty." - Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
