The plight of the Donner Party during the winter of 1846 is one of the most tragic and well-known stories in the history of Western expansion. These stranded and snowbound emigrants, facing insurmountable odds, quickly exhausted their food rations and were driven to cannibalism in a desperate attempt for survival.
