A successful New York businessman and his family are "isolated in their country home by a tremendous snow blizzard" that rages for twenty days, during which the businessman's "existence became a living hell as he fought for his own and his family's survival; waged a frantic struggle against the sieging cold; the slow, creeping grip of hunger; the probing fingers of disease, and against the claws of fear -- that turn seemingly civilised men into animals." 187 pages + 5 pages of advertisements for other Panther titles. Some spine slant/roll, moderate edge/corner wear, rubbing/flaking, previous owner's embossed seal to front end paper, tanning. An uncommon edition.
