Uncover the dark truth behind one of America's most iconic disasters in The Best Land Under Heaven by Michael Wallis.


In 1846, a group of emigrants set out for California, dreaming of a better life. But their journey turned into a nightmare when they were trapped in the Sierra Nevada mountains by early snows. The Donner Party story is a harrowing tale of survival, desperation, and tragedy.


Michael Wallis's The Best Land Under Heaven offers a brilliant and revisionist examination of this iconic disaster. Drawing on new evidence and eyewitness accounts, Wallis paints a vivid portrait of the Donner Party and the challenges they faced. He also explores the broader themes of Manifest Destiny and the human cost of westward expansion.
