Zenas Leonard Exploring the Great Basin

As a clerk to the explorer Joseph Reddeford Walker, Zenas Leonard left the Green River July 24, 1833 to explore the Great Basin, visit California and return in a year.  I want to point out they found no free roaming horses in the Great Basin, but a great many free roaming horses and cattle in the grasslands of California that could have easily crossed the mountains to the Great Basin, but did not.

On page 105 Zenas leaves the Green River.  On page 201 Indians stealing and eating horses is mentioned.  On page 207 they are starving for water and on page 210 they drink blood.
