All of us who know a little about the story of this famous group of people would probably agree with these adjectives. This book, "History of the Donner Party, A Tragedy of the Sierra", by C. F. McGlashan, was first published in 1879, taken from survivors' eyewitness accounts and is still known to be one of the finest reference works available on this tragic incident. The author is advertising the book for $1.00, sent prepaid to any address. It is 14" x 11" in size with a red and green decorative border surrounding the text and a fine engraving of the Sierras, printed by H. S. Crocker & Co. of Sacramento. Excellent condition.
