Old Bones by Preston & Child

Title:  Old Bones

: Preston & Child

Review: Another winner by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child!  This time they take on the story of the Donner party who were stranded by early snowfall while trying to take a short cut over the Sierra Mountains.  There were 48 survivors from the original party of 87.  But do we know the full story?  Clive Benton has found a long lost diary of one of the survivors who chronicles a very different account than what we know today.  With details of a 2nd previously unknown camp, Nora Kelly, a young archaeologist, leads a small expedition into the mountains to search for the camp.  What she discovers will not only change history but puts her in danger from others who are also searching for what the 2nd camp hides.
