Donner Dinner Party (Part 2)

3 years ago

Welcome back to the Q Files.  In the second part of the Donner Dinner Party,  we'll continue to tag along on the snowy trail with our unlucky pioneers. We'll share the rarely examined Native American perspective of this epic American tale and finally, conclude our own dinner party with our Donner-inspired main dish and...a little desperation pie.

At the end of our last episode, we left the band of our desperate immigrants seeking relief, lost deep in the unrelenting blizzards that had covered the Sierra Nevada mountains in 20 ft. snow drifts.  They called themselves, "The Forlorn Hope". They were out of food. They were dying. So... on Christmas Day, after almost nine days without sustenance, they succumbed to only thing that could save them. Cannibalism.
