June and July

Hi all:  So the book club has thrown down a gauntlet in terms of cocktail production with June's book...Desperate Passage: The Donner Party's Perilous Journey West, by Ethan Rarick.

From the copy:

Drawing on fresh archaeological evidence, recent research on topics ranging from survival rates to snowfall totals, and heartbreaking letters and diaries made public by descendants a century-and-a-half after the tragedy, Ethan Rarick offers an intimate portrait of the Donner party and their unimaginable ordeal.

And for July, one of my all time favs: Isabel Allende's Daughter of Fortune.

Happy Reading!
