Comments

Printed in black and red and showing all of the historical trails through the state of Utah. The legend in the lower left corner lists these trails chronologically, beginning with Escalante (1776) and ending with the Pony Express (1860). Included are all of the major US surveys (Fremont, Powell, Simpson and Stansbury), the known mountain men and fur trader routes (Ashley, Ogden and Smith), and the overland trails (California, Oregon, Mormon) and those who crossed the salt flat desert (Donner, Hastings, Clyman, Bryant-Russell). Thirty historic trails are shown in all. Drawn by Fehmel. On the reverse is a short introduction by Rulon S. Howells. Followed by brief descriptions of all of the trails listed, and a short history of Forts in Utah. Variant of Saunders 73, with 'Dale L. Morgan' corrected on the front and internally.
