Reviews

"Daniel James Brown brings the myth to life, transforming faint history class memories into gripping reality."--BookPage
"In this gripping narrative, Brown reveals the extremes of endurance that underlie the history of this nation, and more than that, of humanity in any part of the world, even today, surviving great peril in search of a better life."--Nina Burleigh
"A compelling retelling of the ghastly events surrounding the Donner party. Daniel James Brown, using one survivor's experience as his focus, moves beyond the cardboard figures depicted in previous accounts and shows how the lucky few endured and survived."--Irvin Molotsky, author of The Flag, The Poet and the Song: The Story of the Star-Spangled Banner
"[Brown] tells the tale with a novelist's touch."--Boston Globe
"A skillful, suspenseful study of the Donner Party. ... Brown creates a thorough and unique narrative. A moving man-against-nature tragedy that still resonates today."--Kirkus Reviews
"Remarkable. ... Hard to put down."--Seattle Times
"An ideal pairing of talent and material. . . . Engrossing. . . . A deft and endearing storyteller."--Mary Roach, New York Times Book Review
