Summary
"The Archaeology of the Donner Party offers a new interpretation of the history of the Donner Party, based on the careful analysis of recently discovered artifacts. By supplementing the documentary record with the fruits of their scientific interpretation of physical remains, Hardesty and his colleagues not only provide exciting new information about the Donner Party but suggest promising avenues for further research."--BOOK JACKET
