Catalogue Note

A CLASSIC PHOTOBOOK ON THE AMERICAN WEST.

The views, depicting scenes along the line of the Union Pacific, are intended to illustrate the geology which can be observed from the train. Despite the title, all the photographs are of locales within the Rockies and the Sierra Nevada (twelve in Wyoming, sixteen in Utah, and two in California).
