520    In July 1776 a pair of Franciscan friars, Francisco 
       Atanasio Domínguez and Silvestre Vélez de Escalante, were 
       charged by the governor of New Mexico with discovering a 
       route across the unknown Southwest to the new Spanish 
       colony in California. They had other goals as well, some 
       of them secret: converting the indigenous natives along 
       the way to the true faith, discovering a semi-mythical 
       paradise known as Teguayó, hunting for sources of gold and
       silver, and paving the way for Spanish settlements from 
       Santa Fe to Monterey. In strict terms, the expedition 
       failed. Running out of food and beset by an early winter, 
       the twelve-man team gave up in what is now western Utah. 
       The retreat to Santa Fe became an ordeal of survival. The 
       men were reduced to eating their own horses while they 
       searched for a crossing of the raging Colorado River in 
       Glen Canyon. Seven months after setting out, Domínguez and
       Escalante staggered back to Santa Fe. Yet in the course of
       their 1,700-mile voyage, the explorers discovered more 
       land unknown to Europeans than Lewis and Clark would 
       encounter a quarter-century later. Other writers, using 
       Escalante's brilliant and quirky diary as a guide, have 
       retraced the expedition route, but David Roberts is the 
       first to dig beneath its pages to question and ponder 
       every turn of the team's decision-making and motivation. 
       Roberts weaves the personal and the historical narratives 
       into a gripping journey of discovery through the 
       magnificent American Southwest. --Publisher
