Unfortunate Emigrants: Narratives of the Donner Party
Utah State University Press, 1996 - History - 317 pages
both human weakness and the forces of nature played a role. The story has been told many times and in many ways over the past 150 years until it has become something of an icon in American culture. On the other hand, professional historians have generally dealt with the subject only in the context of works on larger aspects of the westward movement. In the broader historical perspective, the disaster is of minor significance - it had little effect on subsequent events.

Review: Unfortunate Emigrants: Narratives of the Donner PartyUser Review - Kathy - Goodreads
This book covers the experiences of the ill-fated Donner Party. It was chilling, sad, horrifying, and eye-opening. Would highly recommend it as well-documented and very readable. Not fiction! Would you have done what they had to do to survive? Read full review
