WHEELS WEST

The Donner Party crossing- an epic of endurance- is retold with an informal familiarity that retains the heroism of the ordeal, and through James Frazier Reed the leader of the 1846 wagon train. Their struggles and the increasing tensions show both courage and depravity and give the story lasting excitement, as the author's own enthusiasm warms frontier history.
