Detailed Product Description
San Francisco, T.C. Wohlbruck, 1937 or 1939 reprint, "New Edition -Illustrated". 234 pp, b/w historical photos. Tan or rust staple bound softcover with wear and stains. Very Good overall.

McGlashan was born in Wisconsin and was only two years old when his family came to California, making him a contemporary in age and experience with the younger children in the Donner party. He settled in Truckee, California in 1871 where he became an attorney, a publisher, writer and an inventor. His book was by far the most informed account of its time of the Donner Party. It was the first serious attempt to consult authoritative sources, weigh evidence, collect detached episodes into an organized whole, and extend the story of the Donner Party from a sensational incident to an important chapter in California history.
