This bestselling Hazardous Tale is back—and bigger and better than ever

Another fan-favorite Hazardous Tale gets BIG! This special edition of Donner Dinner Party features a larger trim size, a deluxe package, and 16 pages of bonus material, including research photos, sketches, and mini-comics from the author. The Donner Party expedition is one of the most notorious stories in all of American history, but it’s also a fascinating snapshot of the westward expansion of the US, and the families and individuals who sacrificed so much to build new lives in a largely unknown landscape. From the preparation for the journey to each leg of the trip, this book shows the specific bad decisions that led to the party’s predicament in the Sierra Nevadas. Equal parts gruesome and hilarious, this book will get the most reluctant readers interested in American history!
