The Donner Party: Weathering the Storm

"Mark McLaughlin's book, Weathering the Storm, is a refreshing outlook on a heretofore well-publicized event in American history. His weather perspective is unique and provocative. The text also rewards the reader by recounting a broader historical context with which to better understand the Donner Party tragedy. Definitely a '"good read!' "
Dr. Susan Lindstrom, Consulting Archaeologist, Truckee, California

"McLaughlin's The Donner Party: Weathering the Storm provides a fascinating and detailed account of the interaction between weather events and the fate of the trapped emigrant's. I strongly recommend the book."
Dr. Donald Hardesty, Professor of Anthropology, University of Nevada Reno, author of The Archaeology of the Donner Party.

"Black and white photographs pepper virtually every other page of this riveting account, written for readers of all backgrounds."
The Midwest Book Review

"This book is a fine addition to our understanding of the Donner tragedy."
Kristin Johnson, Donner Party Historian, author of Unfortunate Emigrants: Narratives of the Donner Party.

As McLaughlin notes, 'The tale of the Donner Party is complex, complicated, and convoluted.' Needless to say, this gripping tale of pioneer survival and weather-related tragedy is also fascinating. Through the careful reconstruction of the written weather records available, the reader of The Donner Party: Weathering the Storm relives the harsh weather and even harsher life-and-death decisions made during the winter of 1846-1847."
