Ghost towns: the shadowy remains of a town’s former life and activity; its houses, schools, and churches left behind, to dry and crumble in the arid winds of Utah. Carr presents more than 150 such sites across the state—towns formed around mines, railroads and agriculture—but nevertheless there remains a nagging suspicion that there are still ancient, forgotten villages lurking in the hills. Distributed for Western Epics Publishing.

Despite mining's multidimensional role in the history of Utah since Euro-american settlement, there has never been a book that surveyed and contextualized its impact. From the Ground Up fill that gap with a collection of essays by leading Utah historians and geologists. Essays here address the geology of the state, the economic history of mining in Utah, and the lore of mines and miners. Additionally, the book reviews a handul of particularly significant mineral industries---saline, coal, uranium, and beryllium---and surveys important hard-rock mining regions of the state.

History Of Emigration Canyon

This comprehensive and well-illustrated history of one of the more significant historical areas in Utah offers a case study of the development of a scenic, rural area near a major western metropolis. Emigration Canyon was the original route, opened by the Donner party, through the Wasatch Mountains into Salt Lake Valley. It subsequently was the route for pioneer settlers, overland wagon trains, freight and mail lines, and the pony express, and it remained an important transportation corridor even after the development of alternative roads. Subsequently, the canyon provided stone, timber, and grazing resources for the developing city below it; began to be homesteaded; provided a route for one of the Wasatch Range's more interesting narrow gauge railroads; and became a resort community. Its history since the Great Depression has been one of gradual development as a Salt Lake City suburb. Because of its location in the mountains, it has attracted local city dwellers as visitors or residents, and because of its strategic position above the city, it has continued to capture the attention of government and politicians, as repeated contests over water, development, annexation, and zoning of the canyon have shown.

The Silver Queen

Suzanne Egera Bransford Emery Holmes Delitch Engalitcheff gained an H.R.H. before her name via her fourth marriage, to a genuine, if somewhat disreputable, Russian prince. By then she had long been known as the Silver Queen, a reference to the origins of her wealth in the mines of Park City, Utah, that attached to her as she climbed the social ladder of turn-of-the-century high society. Susie, as friends and family knew her, entertained fabulously at her luxurious houses in Salt Lake City and Pasadena - turning her Gardo House, originally built for Brigham Young's favorite wife, into perhaps Salt Lake's most famous mansion - and became a recognized figure in the social circuit and society publications of the west and east coasts. She also lost four husbands and a daughter, suffered through headline-grabbing court battles over inheritances, and in an attempt to maintain a passing way of life, ultimately frittered away what wealth the Great Depression did not take.
