Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: Donner Dinner Party
by Nathan Hale
“These books are, quite simply, brilliant. . . . Thrilling, bloody, action-packed stories from American history.” --New York Times
In the spring of 1846, a group of families left Illinois and began the long journey toward a new life in 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!
The Spy Nathan Hale was executed in 1776. The author Nathan Hale was born in 1976, and is the illustrator of several graphic novels. He lives with his wife and two children in mountains of Utah.
