"The Great Salt Lake, moody and mysterious and fabulous, is the subject of this book by Dale L. Morgan, eminent historian of the American West. Early in the nineteenth century, the lake was a scenic backdrop for mountain men and trappers in search of beaver pelts. For Brigham Young and his Mormon followers it was the place of destiny. But for Spanish, British, and American explorers and traders it was a barrier sea "strangely removed from common experience," a startling "joke of nature." Approached as history, geography, geology, or high adventure, The Great Salt Lake is fascinating reading."--Back cover

Three years in California; William Perkins' journal of life at Sonora, 1849-1852 by William Perkins( Book )

11 editions published between 1924 and 1965 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Perkins was a young Canadian who became an Argonaut early in 1849 when he boarded a steamboat at Cincinnati, and descended the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, past New Orleans, to Brazos Santiago in Texas. There he disembarked to journey across Mexico to Mazatlan on the Pacific coast, where he found passage on another vessel bound for the Golden Gate. Pausing briefly in San Francisco, he went on to the southern gold fields around Sonora, where he worked first as a miner and later as a storekeeper and merchant before returning to New Orleans in 1852. Perkins' journal is a unique document in the literature of western America. His thoughtful but lively account of life in Sonora presents the California Gold Rush from a perspective not commonly encountered--that of a non-Yankee who developed strong Latin American sympathies and affiliations. Further, he had a sharp eye for the details of local color and change in a community that was evolving from a rude mining camp into an organized town. His writing provides the contemporary reader with an insight and appreciation of social and economic factors of the time that seldom are found in the surviving accounts of other forty-niners."--Book jacket

This compilation of Dale Morgan's historical work on Indians in the Intermountain West focuses primarily on the Shoshone who lived near the Oregon and California trails. Three connected works by Morgan are included: First is his classic article on the history of the Utah Superintendency of Indian Affairs. This is followed by an important set of government reports and correspondence from the National Archives concerning the Eastern Shoshone and their leader Washakie. Morgan heavily annotated these for serial publication in the Annals of Wyoming. He also wrote a previously unpublished history of early relations among the Western Shoshone, emigrants, and the government along the California Trail. Morgan biographer Richard L. Saunders introduced, edited, and further annotated this collection. His introduction includes an intellectual biography of Morgan that focuses on the place of the anthologized pieces in Morgan's corpus. Gregory E. Smoak, a leading historian of the Shoshone, contributed an ethnohistorical essay as additional context for Morgan's work
