"In July, 1899, the passenger department of the Union Pacific Railroad sought to revive interest in the further exploration of this wonderful field, and to that end invited a number of scientific men to visit that part of Wyoming and make personal investigation of the field. They went as guests of the Union Pacific and were escorted by an official of the company. Several of these gentlemen recorded their impressions and experiences, and in some instances embodied in their review a critical and comprehensive account of their findings which form a valuable contribution to science; and it has been thought proper to make these papers public on account of their intrinsic worth and interest." - from the Foreword.
