"The City of the Saints" by Sir R.F. Burton

Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890) was a renowned explorer and writer.  This book contains, amongst other things, an account of a journey which he made to the early Mormon colony at Great Salt Lake City.  This review should be read together with my earlier review of The Rocky Mountain Saints by T.B.H. Stenhouse (whom Burton met on his trip).
