Review: To Stay Alive: Mary Ann Graves and the Tragic Journey of the Donner Party

To Stay Alive: Mary Ann Graves and the Tragic Journey of the Donner Party To Stay Alive: Mary Ann Graves and the Tragic Journey of the Donner Party by Skila Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The map in the front piece is wrong. St. Joseph is in the wrong place. There. Had to get that out of the way. It's on the wrong side of the state of Missouri.

I have a morbid curiosity about the Donner Party, like many people. This book in verse takes the point of view from Mary Ann Graves, the second oldest daughter of one family who joined with the Donner party on the way to California. We never know the things we will do to stay alive.
