The Donner Party's Problem and Solution

The Donner party wanted to go to California for a better life. So they got a huge group of people and traveled to California. Though after a while things got harder and they were trapped in a cold winter with barely any food left. Later, they were so desperate they resorted to cannibalism which solved their hunger problem. Now after sending some people for a rescue mission they got out safely and went back to their normal lives.
