Description
1853 Great Salt Lake Utah Stansbury Exploration Mormon Polygamy Sioux Indians



Howard Stansbury was a 19th-century engineer and explorer known for his ventures to the American west. In 1849, he was charged with the task of exploring the Great Salt Lake basin with J.W. Gunnison. The expedition resulted in Mormon hostility and trying times until Brigham Young met with them to ease the tensions. Eventually, the expedition led to improved relations with the Mormons, a better understanding of westward transportation, and a plethora of descriptions of natural findings including plants, animals, fossils, and geographical discoveries.



According to Brigham Madsen,

“Stansbury's Report provided the outside world with an objective look at the Mormons of Utah as well as with a scientific appraisal of the resources and fauna and flora of this section of the Great Basin.”



Along with appendices, this tome features numerous full-page and folding engraved plates. An 1853 Senate edition.
