Site Launch: The Real Story of the Donner Party

We are proud to announce the new single-page website for The Real Story of the Donner Party

The pioneers known as the Donner Party are remembered for their cannibalism. But there is much more to their story. Marian Calabro, author of the award-winning Perilous Journey of the Donner Party and commentator on The Travel Channel and NPR, offers a fascinating 175th anniversary program that reveals new aspects of this timeless survival story.

The website is presented in a single-page format and includes a preview video of the zoom program and an Instagram social media feed that digs deeper each week into the story of this group of American pioneers. This is the third website we have built for Marian Calabro.


“In Calabro’s hands, truth is indeed as spellbinding as fiction.”
