The Best Land Under Heaven: The Donner Party in the Age of Manifest Destiny (Michael Wallis)

A tragic chapter in America’s westward expansion turned sensationalistic when some of the stranded and starving Donner-Reed party of 1846 began eating their dead in a desperate effort to survive. Only 48 of 89 emigrating men, women, and children who entered the Sierra Nevada Mountains made it safely out, and the ill-fated wagon train remains a source of morbid fascination today. Celebrated historian, and author Michael Wallis separates fact from fiction in his new book. Register (link provided).
