Little by little, we'll bring the best of the old Jazzfanz back to life:
The Undaunted is a historical novel of the pioneers that endured a six-month journey across Southern Utah to settle the San Juan area, including taking wagons through the Hole-in-the-Rock. Amazing story of hardship and ingenuity (with a rather silly love story thrown in). A very informative read about a little-known expedition.
My favorite part is a footnote at the end. Two months after they reach their destination after this long and dangerous journey, U.S. census takers arrive in town. Even then you couldn't escape the government.
