KIRKUS REVIEW

Ninth in the lake series, this accumulates the findings of history, natural history and social sciences, stressing the arresting qualities of the Great Salt Lake, emphasizing the general pattern of original settlers, the physical beginnings, the explorations, the influence of mapping of the period, the search for western passage, the growth of empire, the coming of transportation and the changes worked in the pattern of history. This- from the accretion of facts- gives many lost pages of history, incidents, personalities, facts, and adds to the accumulation of information- originally speaking- with whole-hearted interest and absorption in the subject. In its own way, a more paradoxical, mysterious, obstinate, fascinating subject; a more controversial book than any of its predecessors.
