Biography of a young Mormon Scout who disappeared after a leading a wagon train from Utah to Fort Garland, Colorado in 1858. Illustrated with photographs, illustrations and maps - many in full-color.

"Greg's story is, in many ways, a classic hero quest. Orphaned at an early age, Greg was forced to find himself and his destiny on that greatest stage of the 19th Century - the American West. His life was marked by tragedy, but like the true believers of his adopted faith, he never gave up. Greg's story, like that of the Latter-day Saint people, is one of repeated failures borne with a stubborn unwillingness to give up." - from the Introduction.
