The Humbolt: Highroad of the West.

New York: Farrar & Rinehart, 1943. Later printing. A Fine copy in a Very Good plus price clipped dust jacket. The author tells the story of what many believed was the most important river in the development of the West yet the most hated. According to early travelers, the river was the muddiest, filthiest stream in the sun-baked desert. Yet, hundreds of miners, soldiers, Mormons, cattlemen and railroad expanders would traverse the bad tasting waters.This was the land of harsh extremes, violent and brutal, thirst and stavation.
