First published in 1930, Salt Desert Trails tells the story of the Great Salt Desert crossings by early explorers and emigrant parties. Central to the story is the opening of the Hastings Cutoff in 1846, which led to the tragedy of the Donner Party and the pioneering of the emigrant trails through Utah’s Wasatch Mountains.
