Abstract:

"The Great Salt Lake, moody and mysterious and fabulous, is the subject of this book by Dale L. Morgan, eminent historian of the American West. Early in the nineteenth century, the lake was a scenic backdrop for mountain men and trappers in search of beaver pelts. For Brigham Young and his Mormon followers it was the place of destiny. But for Spanish, British, and American explorers and traders it was a barrier sea "strangely removed from common experience," a startling "joke of nature." Approached as history, geography, geology, or high adventure, The Great Salt Lake is fascinating reading."--Back cover.
