From the rugged beauty and refined splendor of this vast state emerges a remarkable volume of personal recollections, narrative histories and astonishing stories. Explore the fortitude and cultural diversity behind the development of Utah through “Big Bill” Haywood, vilified by the New York Times as “the most feared figure in America.” Experience compelling accounts of women bruised on the front lines of suffrage battles, enthralling stories of Chinese “paper sons and daughters” and heroic endeavors of Northern Ute firefighters. Celebrate downtown’s “Wall Street of the West,” the off-road cyclist known as the “Bedouin of the Desert” and Utah’s love affair with sweets. Culled from her popular Salt Lake Tribune “Living History” column, award-winning author Eileen Hallet Stone uncovers captivating tales of ordinary people and their extraordinary contributions that shaped Utah history.

The distinctive high mesa straddling West Texas and Eastern New Mexico creates a vista that is equal parts sprawling lore and big blue sky. From Lubbock, the area's informal capital, to the farthest reaches of the staked plains known as the Llano Estacado, the land and its inhabitants trace a tradition of tenacity through numberless cycles of dust storms and drought. In 1887, a bison hunter observed antelope, sand crane and coyote alike crowding together to drink from the same wet-weather lake. A similarly odd assortment of characters shared and shaped the region's heritage, although neighborliness has occasionally been strained by incidents like the 1903 Fence Cutting War. David Murrah and Paul Carlson have collected some three dozen vignettes that stretch across the uncharted terrain of the tableland's past.

Visiting the redwoods in nineteenth-century California meant coming to Big Trees Grove, now part of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. This forest of giants in the Santa Cruz Mountains attained fame through the 1846 exploits of explorer John Charles Frémont, whose namesake tree still stands. Saved from the logger's axe by Joseph Warren Welch in 1867, these were the first coastal redwoods preserved for public recreation. As a world-renowned resort for sixty years, Big Trees Grove hosted thousands of visitors--from picnickers to presidents, including Theodore Roosevelt. Join author Deborah Osterberg as she recounts the stories of those first visitors and the awe-inspiring landscape they preserved for future generations.

Located in the Finger Lakes region of New York, Seneca County has a fascinating history. Early settlers courageously fought off wild animals from wolves to panthers to tame the land and keep the new settlements safe. The rise and fall of the mill industry led to the demise of ghost towns like the Kingdom. The jailhouse murder of John Walters in 1887 fostered improved conditions in the county jail. From the first home-run hitter in major-league baseball to the insidious activity of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s and the unfortunate burning of a traveling embalmed whale, author and historian Walter Gable shares many of the defining moments of Seneca County history.
