Discover the shocking and true story of the ill-fated Donner Party expedition with the New York Times bestselling graphic novel series

In the spring of 1846, a group of families left Illinois and began the long journey to California. To save time, they took an ill-advised shortcut--with disastrous consequences.

Bad weather, bad choices, and just plain bad luck forced the pioneers to spend a long, cold winter in the mountains, slowly starving. What they did to stay alive and the lengths that others went to in order to rescue them make this one of the most tragic and infamous stories of the American frontier.

Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales are graphic novels that tell the thrilling, shocking, gruesome, and TRUE stories of American history. Read them all--if you dare
