Description
 
Here is some of the most dramatic & controversial incidents of cannibalism in history. Includes: an account of the disastrous Donner party expedition in the snows of the Sierra Nevada in 1847; from Nat Philbrick’s book “In the Heart of the Sea,” about the wreck of the whaleship Essex; & from Piers Read’s classic “Alive,” which relates the tragic aftermath of a 1972 Uruguayan airliner crash. Brings together little-known & equally shocking tales -- how marauding gangs of cannibals, 1150 A.D., may have destroyed a flourishing southwestern civilization; how forensic evidence revealed the truth behind the vanished 1845 expedition of Arctic explorer John Franklin; how the Japanese practiced ritual cannibalism on Allied soldiers during WW2; & much more.
