Hidden History of Utah by Eileen Hallet Stone

In the 1840s, land west of the Missouri River was a new frontier for courage, adventure, freedom and true grit. During this era and the decades that followed, Utah became the focal point for many brave settlers yearning for a new way of life. While Utah’s proud Mormon legacy is well documented, there are lesser-known stories that contribute to the state’s fascinating history.

Join public historian, author and history columnist Eileen Hallet Stone for a look into the state’s forgotten past as she presents a revelatory collection of tales culled from her popular Salt Lake Tribune” “Living History” column. From newly freed slaves, early suffragists, desert farmers and union men to railroad kings, cattle barons, influential statesmen and more, this is “Hidden History of Utah.”
