In 1758, 15-year-old Mary Jemison, with family and friends, was dragged from her Pennsylvania cabin by a raiding party of Frenchmen and Shawnee. From that point on, Mary was an Indian, and her story, recorded at the age of 80 became one of the most popular captivity narratives of all time.

The story of the Donner Party is very much the story of James F. Reed's family, not simply because the Reeds were prominent members, but because they left much documentary evidence: diaries, memoirs, correspondence and letters written en route and interviews shortly after the disaster. The adopted daughter of Reed, Virginia Reed Murphy's memoir is a noteworthy recounting of the Donner party disaster and its gruesome end. Her writing is sprightly, informal, and full of human interest.
