Season 1 Episode 22 The Donner Party Part 2: Tragedy in the High Sierras


The continued story of the Donner Party as tragedy strikes in the Sierra Nevada mountains.


The Donner Party reached the Salt Lake Valley in August of 1846. They had lost precious time crossing the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, and they yet had hundreds of miles to travel before they reached California. They journeyed on and while ascending the mountains, just before the summit, the snow came. Many would never make it. This episode features the scholarship of Jay Buckley, William Hartley, and Fred Gowans.
