Explorer and mountain man Jim Bridger, center, who met with the advance party of Latter-day Saint pioneers headed for the Salt Lake Valley, “considered it imprudent to bring a large population into the Great Basin,” President Brigham Young recorded. The explorer offered $1,000 for proof that corn could be grown there. Replied President Young: “Wait a little, and we will show you” (B. H. Roberts, A Comprehensive History of the Church, 3:201).
