Biography for Big Snow
Simon and Schuster
Berta and Elmer Hader live in the country in a stone house which they built themselves. They love the birds and animals of the woods and make pets of many of them. Their house on Willow Hill on the Palisades overlooks the Hudson River at Nyack, and they have experienced many a big snow, when it was almost impossible to leave their hillside. So the events of this delightful picture-storybook are very real and you may be sure that the Haders were the people in that stone house who put food out for the creatures of the woods and meadows during the winter of the Big Snow.
