This is the very beginning of my research into the subject. It is one that I am sure will have many facets, and will require a great deal of help in compiling.
This area is right now going to be a place to stockpile related info until I refine it.

Not EG. John Muir's book etc..
"The Donner Party"
EG. Hardships of the range and it's passes.
