A sprightly boy and a romping girl -- The barren earth -- The meager by the meager were devoured -- In the reproof of chance -- Appendix: The Donner Party encampments.
A chronicle of the mid-nineteenth-century wagon train tragedy draws on the perspectives of one of its survivors, Sarah Graves, recounting how her new husband and she joined the Donner party on their California-bound journey and encountered violent perils, in an account that also offers insight into the scientific reasons that some died while others survived.
