The Great Salt Lake

by

The Great Salt Lake Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After the passage of nearly a half-century, this book remains both one of the most informative and readable general histories of Utah yet written and a tribute to the brilliance of its author, the late Dale Morgan (1914-71).

Approached as history, geography, geology, or high adventure, The Great Salt Lake is fascinating reading. From the first Americans, through mountain men, religious empires, railroads, and resorts, the remnant of ancient Lake Bonneville has been a nexus for human history, uniting a haunting beauty with raw desolation, 'strangely removed from common experience.'

Book News Annotation:

**** A reprint of Dale Morgan's history of Utah with a new foreword by Harold Schindler. Originally published by Bobbs-Merrill in 1947, this is a classic work of high scholarship that is endorsed by BCL3.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
