Overview

The City of the Saints: And Across the Rocky Mountains to California (Classic Reprint) by Richard F. Burton

Excerpt from The City of the Saints: And Across the Rocky Mountains to California

I need hardly say that this elaborate account of the Holy City of the West and its denizens would not have seen the light so soon after the appearance of a Journey 'to Great Salt Lake City, by M. Jules Remy, had there not been much left to say. The French naturalist passed through the Mormon Settlements in 1855, and five years in the Far West are equal to fifty in less conservative lands; the results of which are, that the relation of my experiences will in no way clash with his, or prove a tire some repetition to the reader of both.
