The epic story of the Mormon pioneers is the story of a valiant, though persecuted group of people. Having been driven from their homes in the dead of winter, they fled to the Rocky Mountains and settled in the Great Salt Lake Valley. Here they became noted for their achievements in pioneering, homemaking, and colonizing great portions of this western country
Prominent in these activities of homemaking and colonizing, was George Washington Hill. Nature had endowed him handsomely. He was large and powerful of stature and he had a dignity and magnetism which drew men to him. In addition, he was an able marksman, a trait long recognized as a real asset in this frontier land.
