To commemorate the original Mormon trek across the plains to Great Salt Lake City, which was first published in the Salt Lake Tribune in 1897, the Tribune reprinted the entire series in 1934. Specially prepared scrapbooks were issued, and faithful readers could cut out each day's installment of the great trek west and affix it into their scrapbooks each day; from April 5th to July 24th.
