Описание

From the number one best-selling author of The Boys in the Boat comes an unforgettable epic of family, tragedy, and survival on the American frontier.

In April of 1846, 21-year-old Sarah Graves, intent on a better future, set out west from Illinois with her new husband, her parents, and eight siblings. Seven months later, after joining a party of pioneers led by George Donner, they reached the Sierra Nevada Mountains as the first heavy snows of the season closed the pass ahead of them. In early December, starving and desperate, Sarah and 14 others set out for California on snowshoes and over the next 32 days endured almost unfathomable hardships and horrors.

In this gripping narrative, New York Times best-selling author Daniel James Brown sheds new light on one of the most legendary events in American history. Following every painful footstep of Sarah’s journey with the Donner Party, Brown produces a tale both spellbinding and richly informative.

  • (5/5)
    Captivating story. Loved how he put so much effort into getting the real facts of the story to make it seem as real as possible. The ending is fabulous.

    Very interesting and more focused on the journey/trail history and survival mentality.

    Read it, you won’t be disappointed.
    I didn’t start with a particular interest in either American history. I’d heard a short podcast that piqued my interest and decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I did.
    Meticulously researched and detailed, it really brought the whole saga, from beginning to end, to life. What a story...
    Almost unimaginable in today’s modern world

    This book was recommended by Last Podcast On The Left when they were doing a few shows about The Donner Party. This book a wealth of knowledge on their epic/tragic journey. It almost reads like a novel, that's how riveting the story and people are. I really feel that this needs to be turned into a TV docu-series.
