The author was editor of the "Truckee Republican" and, being near the scene of the tragedy, had access to many hundreds of letters and manuscripts of the survivors of the unfortunate expedition of 1846. He built his book upon these and around the famous diary of Patrick Breen, one of the actors in the many gruesome events described. The fate of the Donner Party and their resorts to cannibalism is famous in American history." A previous owner wrote her name, "Mrs Alice Springer-Sage" on the inside of the front cover and on the top of the dedication page in black ink. Head, tail and corners are slightly worn and bumped. Pages are very clean and complete. Binding is tight. Bookseller Inventory # 018529
