This series gives a report of the author’s explorations in Salt River Valley, Arizona, wherein he hypothesizes that the inhabitants of Salt River Valley came from Hagoth’s voyages to the north country (Alma 63). The peoples had buildings and temples made of cement and probably used metal. The first part discusses ancient irrigation in the Salt River Valley and gives the author's hypothesis of this society originating from Hagoth's voyages.
