The Donner Party was a special group of frontier explorers who set out for the old American West in 1846 and got trapped in the snowy Sierra Nevadas where they were compelled to resort to cannibalism to survive through the winter when food rations shrunk.

This incident has been treated with special care by historians, since it not only reveals the unusual intrigue associated with historic frontier expansion, but it also raises discussions about the human reputation attributed to America's unique brand of rugged self-definitions.

America is of course a nation founded on immigration and frontier exploration, so naturally the ghost-ship Donner Party incident continues to represent academic approaches to American prosperity riddles.

Today, American capitalism has branched out globally, and the USA is the world's most developed multi-cultural democracy, from East Coast to West Coast. You can find great instructional cooking programs and eatery profiles on American cable television and even order cooking items by calling into American market stations such as HSN. This sort of lifestyle development intrigue calls into question the intellectual intrigue that the Donner Party raises regarding 'consumerism vanity.'

What would prompt someone who has only posted 5 times to make such a thread? Here is my first assessment. Please understand that I am just trying to be honest in my assessment. The most probable reason for the above post is: You are a student/writer/academic who wishes others to do your research/test/review of the above topic. Looking at your profile whereas I can view all of your posts/threads, this is certainly in keeping with other threads you have started.

Am I wrong?
