1911. Illustrated. A captivating account of the period when American civilization first crossed its mountain heights and entered its overland gateways written by the daughter of the Captain of the ill-fated Donner Party. She writes: And I, a child then, scarcely four years of age, was too young to do more than watch and suffer with other children the lesser privations of our snow-beleaguered camp; and with them survive, because the fathers and mothers hungered in order that the children might live.
