Stansbury Island, the second largest island in the Great Salt Lake, was named after Captain Howard Stansbury, the first man to survey the lake. When the lake level is low, Stansbury Island becomes a peninsula. This video is extracted from the 22-part video series The Geography of Utah, conceived and written by Albert L. Fisher, PhD of the University of Utah. The series encompasses the political, cultural, historical and sociological geography of the state of Utah. It describes the activities, the land, and the people. Much of the video material was videotaped on location throughout the state of Utah, giving the student and interested viewer valuable field trip experiences.
