Fantastic book. I knew of the Donner Party and the tragedy that befell them but this book, written in 1936, is a great retelling of the details of the journey, the storm that traps the, their tales of survival, and their eventual rescue.
A detailed, gripping account of the Donner Party tragedy. A real page turner. Includes diaries of some of the survivors.
