According to Saunders: "Great Salt Lake dealt more with the historical context of the lake than the body of water itself, describing the epochal history of the lake itself, early exploration and mapping, the settlements of Salt Lake City, tourism and recreation, and the advent of railroads beside and across the lake. Besides his incomplete history of the Mormons, this work contains the only published example of Morgan's historical treatment of his religious culture." Saunders 19.
