P. 5- "A son of the wild and isolated area he writes about, Platt has undertaken to preserve the image he remembers from pioneer days. The land remains unchanged, but its erstwhile settlers are gone, the land again vacant. Though a labor of love, salmon River saga is intended mostly as a contribution to the history of Idaho's pioneer years. And though small in size, the recalled scene is the epitome of the final surge of Western settlement on many fronts." Inscribed by Platt below his frontispiece photograph.
