In "The Little Girl Who Dared" by Henry Lanier you'll hear the story of the disastrous plight of the Donner Party, when a large group of emigrants traveling to California were trapped in the Sierra Mountains for months as a result of early snows. The courage of a small girl in bringing aid to her father, who had been turned out of the party, turned out to be a critical factor in the survival of half the group, in this true pioneer story. Its an excellent account of the hardships that early emigrants faced on their way to a new life in the American West. Our website: Twitter: @1001podcast Facebook:   Music by Ross Bugden
