From the editor:

Dr. Herbert E. Gregory has been coming to this region nearly every year since 1900 to spend several months in southern Utah's scenic wonderlands, trying to piece together the story of the ancient past.

During this period of years Dr. Gregory has become intimately acquainted with this region. He visited it first on foot or horseback with native Indians as guides. Now he flies over it in grand airplanes and photographs in a few minutes areas that required days or weeks to even reach some forty years ago.
