Overview

Excerpt from A Glimpse of Utah: Its Resources, Attractions and Natural Wonders

Every book - great or small - should have a preface. It is the reader's right to be told in advance for what purpose the book was written, and what he may expect to find along the paths of print if he shall follow them to their end.

This book was written to give wider publicity to the phenomenal development now going on in Utah; to tell the wonderful story of the achievements of a people who, in little more than half a century, wrought out of a wilderness a populous and productive state; and to stimulate, so far as a book may, inquiry by capitalists and homeseekers about the opportunities awaiting them on the other side of the range.

As the title suggests, the book will give only a glimpse - a mere outline - of the many interesting and curious things, God - and man-made, to be seen in Utah. To attempt more would be to fill volumes and then leave the record but half written.

The reader will be shown among the print many scenes of grandeur and beauty, and will be told just enough about the mining, smelting, manufacturing, agricultural, horticultural, stock-growing and other interests; the social and educational advantages; the scenic, bathing and other attractions, the climate, and enough about the enterprise and industry of the people who live and prosper in Utah, to give him a good general idea of the state.

There will be a little about the Mormons, just now somewhat misunderstood and misjudged, and something about the Uintah Reservation recently opened to settlement, and about the little railroad that runs into it.
