1 KING, Joseph A. WINTER OF ENTRAPMENT. A New Look at the Donner Party.
California K&K Publications 1994 096085004X / 9780960850044 Revised Edition (1st 1992) soft cover FINE 
xiv+258pp. Illus. in text. The author tells the true story of the most famous of all wagon trains, that of the Donner Party. His fresh research into this revised edition has provided additional evidence that all past chroniclers of the saga have relied sometimes on mythology rather than hard evidence. The major focus remains on the family of nine Breens, all of whom survived the ordeal in the snows of the High Sierras during the terrible winter of 1846-7, but the whole story of the Donner Party is told in the most definitive edition ever published. New biographical data on emigrant and rescuers, transcript of an important Diary, chart showing the complicated itineraries of the relief party and much other new light on the tragedy. Bibliography and Index.
