LimburgIt is 1846 and you are a member of a wagon train heading to California. You are running behind schedule, but you can still get across the Sierra Nevada mountains before the pass is blocked by snow—if you don’t get delayed further. Midway through Indian country you are asked to join a group that is going to take a new cutoff that is said to save two weeks of travel time.You join these hopeful travelers and elect George Donner as your leader.

After weeks of grueling travel and mishaps, you come to the backbone of the Sierras. Snow is on the ground, but it is still possible to get through—if you hurry. The exhausted oxen cannot pull the wagons up the nearly vertical cliffs. You, like the others, must struggle up on foot. You reach the pass at nightfall. Some urge pushing ahead and making camp on the far side, but the majority are exhausted, and refuse to go on.Snow falls that night- the pass is blocked.

The travelers return to the lake at the foot of the ridge and make camp. There is no game, and the remaining oxen are lost in another snowstorm. People are suffering from hunger and malnutrition. A group sets off across the pass on snowshoes to find help. Weeks pass. People are dying from hunger. Someone suggests that you try to survive by eating the flesh of those who have died.For the people of the Donner Party, these were not academic questions.

Deceived is their true and tragic story, the story of a hopeful dream turned into horror and disaster.
