Tenderfoot Days

By George Robert Bird

This is a memoir by a non-Mormon about his experiences in the prospecting camps of Utah at the turn of the 19th century. It was donated to sacred-texts by the anonymous volunteer who goes by the name of 'Some Dude'. This is a first-person perspective by an outsider to the then newly minted state of Utah, which gives both a sympathetic account of the Mormons, while bringing up some darker aspects about their history. He also presents a stereotypical portrayal of the Native Americans of the region. As always, we encourage readers to consider the historical context in which this book was written, as well as retain a critical point of view.
