synopsis
IN 1846 THE DONNER PARTY SET OUT FOR THE "PROMISED LAND." .. .

They were leaving the hot, arid country of Utah and Nevada behind. They were heading for California, land of opportunity--beautiful, green, and rich. And they were all going together.
There was Mahitabel Smith, who loved God. She was married to a weak, cowardly man. She hoped that California would change her family's luck.
There was Gordy Warren, who loved his friends. He had come from England. California would mean a new life ... and a second chance.
There was Nancy Jurer, who loved herself. She was a New Orleans madam gone broke. She hoped California would make her and her talented girls rich.
And there was Dave Glenny, who loved no one. He was a mean, brawny Welshman who thought he could make a fortune in the wide-open West--even if he had to kill to get it.
This is the story of the infamous Donner Party incident--a strange crew of people on an even stranger journey. A journey that was to end in a horrifying decision. A decision so incredible, so devastating that it would change the lives of every one of them.
