Excerpt from Across the Rocky Mountains, From New York to California: With a Visit to the Celebrated Mormon Colony, at the Great Salt Lake
The overland journey to California, though still an arduous one, is now divested of many of the dangers and difficulties I encountered. R... eplenishing depots are now established at convenient points in the wilderness; the faint Indian trail has become a beaten thoroughfare; the morasses no longer threaten to engulph the traveller; the rapid rivers are ferried over; the thicket is pierced; the forests felled; the rugged pass smoothed over; there's a well in the desert; and the terror of retribution keeps the savage Indian in awe: nevertheless, our indefatigable tour ists had better continue to confine their excursions to the beautiful Rhine, and the familiar alpine scenery of Swit zerland, until the completion of the great central railway.
