The ending history in Chapter 1 concerning the first white men
to see the High Uinta Mountains will be an introduction to....
....MY FIRST BOOK,
so let me add a teaser!
GOING FOR THE GOLD!
For many years it has been thought that Escalante and Dominguez were
"the first white people to visit the Uinta Basin and see at a distance the High Uinta Mountains."
But, history mentions they came north following
"the old Spanish trail,"
which means it was a trail that already existed made previously by Spanish explorers....right?
I relate the story in my HIGH UINTAS BOOK, regarding
GOLD IN THE UINTAS and THE LOST RHODES MINE,
how that happened as early as the mid 1500's
when Spaniards were the first white men to see the High Uintas!
For "the rest of the story" and quotes how to find the gold, and
pictures of whole mountains of it,
you'll have to get
MY BOOK, details how below:
THE HIGH UINTA MOUNTAINS BOOK
It is the only book on the High Uintas that has up-to-date information about the lakes with color topographical maps showing the routes and distances to each lake, as well as being the only guide book that has HISTORY, LEGENDS, SURVIVAL STORIES of those who didn't make it and why, plus MY OWN 8 SURVIVAL STORIES & why I'm still around in my late 80's. There is also an important chapter on...
.. LIGHTWEIGHT --JOYFUL & SAFE BACKPACKING ANYWHERE that first explores
WHY WE EXPLORE,
and even a section on why one outdoor expert from the East
on a BYU Radio talk show called me a...
"BAD ASS BACKPACKER!"
The explanation about what to some might
sound "bad" and "vulgar" needing to be bleeped out by BYU,
is clarafied as "a good thing" for outdoor lovers!"
You'll have to decide for yourself....good, or bad?

HOW to ACQUIRE THE BOOK
Cordell M. Andersen
444 Elm St.
American Fork, Utah 84003
On receipt of your order I will immediately email you a link to download the book to your computer along with my permission to share the link with one other friend.
For a print copy in two volumes as seen above the spiral version
is the most practical as pages will remain open.
The other version is mainly for libraries with a place
to list call numbers.
Every library in the U.S. should have this book as
there is no other book about the
SAFE, ENJOYABLE BACKPACKING ANYWHERE
that even comes close.
I do not personally handle orders for print copies anymore as I did in the beginning for about 60 more than willing to pay big bucks to get it, but now suggest my favorite printer below. Prices in the beginning were relatively low as I got a quantity discount for the 60 who were willing to pay almost anything, but prices have risen a lot, so you will have to talk to the printer....but for a single copy you can expect the cost to be around $200. They do excellent color reproduction with great paper.
Also they can do a black & white version that will cost about 1/3rd of what color will cost.
Of course you can get it done at your favorite printer by taking to the printer a thumb drive with the book. If you go to Office Max, remember my experience is that they printed all the pictures too dark, so give strict instructions to avoid that and get better color reproduction.
Best call COPYTEC.
In a week or more....likely two or three....as I still have to do my hikes and keep track of all the plants, insects, mammals, & repitles, lichens, rocks, etc. but soon (now Sept. 30, 2023) will come
that I promise will WOW you with more incredible....
