Thumbs up "Old Bones" Nora Kelly 1. Book about the Donner Party.

The Official Website of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child - Old Bones: A Nora Kelly Novel

This was quite good. Very exciting in places.

Great choice for that character.

Have you ever read Searching for Tamsen Donner? I can't imagine making a novel out of this tragedy.

She figures a lot in this novel. Her diary and what is in it.

We lived in Reno, Nevada from 1970 through 1984 so the Donner Party came up a lot in conversation as Donner Pass was only about 40 miles away from Reno. Donner Pass - Wikipedia

I80 highway webcams and road conditions - Donner Summit, Donner Lake, CA, Sierra Nevada
