The Expedition of the Donner Party and its Tragic Fate

The Expedition of the Donner Party and its Tragic Fate by Eliza Poor Donner Houghton

The Expedition of the Donner Party and its Tragic Fate by Eliza Poor Donner Houghton

The Donner Party was a group of California-bound American settlers caught up in the “westering fever” of the 1840s. After becoming snowbound in the Sierra Nevada in the winter of 1846–1847, some of the emigrants resorted to cannibalism. Although this aspect of the tragedy has become synonymous with the Donner Party in the popular imagination, it actually was a minor part of the episode.

The author was about 4 at the time. The first part of the book accounts the tragic journey and rescue attempts; the last half are reminiscences of the child orphan, passed from family to family while growing up.

Mont Oriol

Mont Oriol by Guy de Maupassant

Mont Oriol by Guy de Maupassant

Young bride Christiane arrives in Auvergne to “take the waters” with her husband, described as “a sickly flower, or a sucking pig with its hair shaved off.” But rather than the relaxing family vacation she expects, she finds herself the center of a conspiracy between her father, the Marquis, and the “fossil” medical team in an effort to solve the problem of a lack of heir. Suddenly the discovery of a new spa throws the resort into disarray and brings a lowly family to prominence. Romantic intrigue, financial speculation, satire in the medical profession, a social commentary on the status of women, are all delivered in de Maupassant’s picturesque prose.
