Willie Nelings and the Blizzard of 1887

Willie Nelings was a schoolteacher during the great Dakota Blizzard of 1887. According to a newspaper report in Wisconsin, where her sister lived, Willie saved the lives of her students during the storm by tying them together and leading them to a farm.
Sometime later, she took pen to paper and wrote about the Blizzard in a short story. Here are the scanned pages of her manuscript.
