Book Club | “The Indifferent Stars Above: The Harrowing Saga of a Donner Party Bride” by Daniel James Brown

Trace the disastrous journey of the Donner Party, which takes the advice of a scoundrel to pursue a shortcut and ends up trapped in the Sierra Nevadas in the winter of 1846. Brown uses his research skills and imagination to recreate the hardship and horrors the starving party endures, highlighting the story of a young woman who makes it to California. Join us for coffee and a great discussion led by docent Helen Huntley.
