Welcome to 1001 Classic Short Stories and Tales Audio Podcast!  This is a hand-picked collection of favorites from writers like Jack London, Louisa May Alcott, Hans Christian Anderson, Edgar Allen Poe, Rudyard Kipling, and many more. I narrate the stories and often add background music and sound effects to bring the stories to life. These are suitable for the entire family, enjoyed by all ages and levels of literary experience, and often make great discussion starters for students who are just getting exposed to literature. 

For all of you who love a good story, we hope you come back again and again, and please share our show with others!

This entirely family-friendly episode tells 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.
