Known and revered equally for its wild beauty and socially conservative Mormon culture, Utah is a western state like no other. Though marked by great violence at its founding, Utah has a less freewheeling and lawless frontier history, due to the firm control of the Mormon dominated culture and government. Most of the state's wildness is to be found in its awe-inspiring landscapes. The state includes some of the nation's most dramatic national parks, including Monument Valley, Arches, Bryce Canyon, and Zion. It's also rich in personality and talent, having produced the likes of the Osmond family, Robert Redford, Roseanne Barr, and NFL star Steve Young. This book reveals Utah's many mysteries and riches.
