From the Preface- "Over this historical highway the Mormons made their lonely Hegira to the valley of that vast inland sea. On its shores they established a city, marvelous in its conception, and a monument to the ability of man to overcome almost insuperable obstacles - the product of a faith equal to that which inspired the crusader to battle to the death for the possession of the Holy Sepulchre. Over this route, also, were made those world-renowned expeditions by Fremont, Stansbury, Lander, and others of lesser fame, to the heart of the Rocky Mountains, and beyond to the blue shores of the Pacific Ocean." Includes a recounting of the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Flake/Draper 4254. Howes I55
