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 even pictures of whole mountains of it,you’ll have to get GET MY BOOK, details below:

PRINT COPIES 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 HIGH UINTAS or 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.
