The Expedition of the Donner Party and its Tragic Fate

by Eliza Poor Donner Houghton

Well written. Most of the story doe not dwell on the "gruesome" Donner party but what happened to the young author after she was rescued. She was 4 when stranded with her family in the pass and she and her sisters survived.

Her parents both died and in her later years she sets out to expunge the name of her father.
It does put her mother and father in a good light as saviors of the doomed emigrants.

There were lots of illustrations of the Sacramento valley in the original book which did not come with the kindle download. It would be great to see those.

I would recommend it.

Written over 2000 years ago and the "battle of the sexes" rages on!

When the gentlemen go to war, the women they leave behind both miss their men and want the wars to stop.

How to do it? They ban together and decide to withhold sex from their men until they "come to their senses".

The theme never grows old! Fantastic !

When first published this book was banned . It was considered so racy and immoral. It is worth a read today for it is not nearly so racy as one might expect by today's standards.

A classic.
