Even tho I've read several of the Donner Party accounts, (& it had been awhile ago), before I'd gotten very far I found myself totally engrossed again & read probably about 3/4 of the book in one sitting!
There are a nice assortment of color & black & white photos of the area as it is now, as well of some drawings made at the time of the event.
I found it to be a good, gripping read.
