Tamsen Donner must be a witch. That is the only way to explain the series of misfortunes that have plagued the wagon train known as the Donner Party. Depleted rations, bitter quarrels, and the mysterious death of a little boy have driven the pioneers to the brink of madness. The 90 men, women, and children of the Donner Party are at the brink of one of the deadliest and most disastrous western adventures in American history. Effortlessly combining the supernatural and the historical, this is an eerie, thrilling look at the volatility of human nature, pushed to its breaking point.
