Excerpt from The Great Salt Lake: Present and Past

In some parts the following pages are reprints of articles that have appeared over the writer's signature in local and scientific periodicals; in other portions they are little more than a compilation of facts already of record. Perhaps sufficient excuse for the present publication may be found in the fact that reliable information regarding the Great Salt Lake is of difficult access to the general reader, inasmuch as it is mostly contained in the valuable though ponderous tomes of the national surveys. The popular writings on the subject, with some exceptions, have been criticized as extravagant and untrustworthy. The truth regarding Utah's Dead Sea is sufficiently impressive without recourse to fabulous embellishment, even if such were in any sense justifiable.

The writer has drawn freely on the valuable records of investigators, and acknowledgment of authorities has been made in place.
