Narratives of the Donner Party

Book Notice

In a year of commemorating pioneering in Utah, readers might also be interested in a volume that documents the heartrending experience of the Donner party, who crossed Utah on their way to California. Unfortunate Emigrants: Narratives of the Donner Party is a selection of early accounts, some hard-to-find, of those ill-fated 1846 pioneers who were trapped in the snows of the Sierra Nevada and of the efforts made to rescue them.
