David Lavender - Snowbound: The Tragic Story of the Donner Party

64. Snowbound: The Tragic Story of the Donner Party by David Lavender (1948)
Length: 96 pages
Genre: Non-Fiction
Started: 25 December 2010
Finished: 27 December 2010
Where did it come from? From Bookmooch
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 30 November 2010
Why do I have it? Mareena gave me this book as a Christmas present.

This is a children's book of the story of the Donner Party - a party of settlers who were traveling to California and got trapped in a snowstorm. It is a story of greed, heroics and tragedy. I love history and trivia books, and my daughter knows that the history that I like to read is usually contained in children's books. I found this story was heartrending and give it an A!

A! - (90-95%)

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
