Wow! I felt as if I was right there along with the Donner party, the way that the author, George Stewart, told this story. The book is detailed enough to really “feel it”, but also moves along at a good pace that keep you coming back for more.
I was able to actually envision how the Donner party faced tremendous odds of adversity and had to resort to some of the most unthinkable acts in order to try to survive. Would you?… Could you? Well, if you were facing these odds… you just might!
If you’re looking for a really good, true story, adventure book, this is the one for you!
