25th Street Confidential

Orders: 800-621-2736

The provocative, colorful history of Ogden’s notorious 25th Street

Drama, Decadence, and Dissipation along Ogden’s Rowdiest Road Val Holley

25th Street Confidential traces Ogden’s transformation from quiet hamlet to chaotic transcontinental railroad junction as waves of non-Mormon fortune seekers swelled the city’s population. The street’s outsized role in Ogden annals illuminates larger themes in Utah and U.S. history. Most significantly, 25th Street was a ­crucible of Mormon-Gentile conflict, especially after the non-Mormon Liberal Party deprived its rival, the People’s Party, of long-­standing control of Ogden’s municipal government in 1889. In the early twentieth-century the street was targeted in statewide Progressive Era reform efforts, and during Prohibition it would come to epitomize the futility of liquor abatement programs. This first full-length treatment of Ogden’s rowdiest road spotlights larger-than-life figures whose careers were entwined with the street: Mayor Harman Ward Peery, who unabashedly filled the city treasury with fees and fines from vicious establishments; Belle London, the most successful madam in Utah history; and Rosetta Ducinnie Davie, the heiress to London’s legacy who became a celebrity on the street, in the courts, and in the press. Material from previously unexploited archives and more than one hundred historic photos enrich this narrative of a turbulent but ­unforgettable street.

Val Holley is a native of Weber County, Utah, attended Weber State College, and received a BA in journalism from BYU, a JD from the University of Utah, and an MLS from the Catholic University of America. For three decades he has been a law librarian and an independent historian in Washington, DC. He is the author of James Dean: The Biography and Mike Connolly and the Manly Art of Hollywood Gossip.

Generations of Ogdenites have grown up absorbing 25th Street’s legends of corruption, menace, and depravity. The rest of Utah has tended to judge Ogden—known in its first century as a “gambling hell” and tenderloin, and in recent years as a degraded skid row— by the street’s gaudy reputation. Present-day Ogden embraces the afterglow of 25th Street’s decadence and successfully promotes it to tourists. In the same preservationist spirit as Denver’s Larimer Square, today’s 25th Street is home to art galleries, fine dining, live theater, street festivals, mixed-use condominiums, and the Utah State Railroad Museum.


    ince the late 1800s, when professional fossil hunters vied with each other to bring the largest and most complete specimens to the

museum market, Utah has been one of the most fertile grounds for dinosaur discovery. Because rock from the Mesozoic era covers more than 25,000 square miles in Utah, the state is a natural museum of the great age of dinosaurs. The presence of sites such as Dinosaur National Park and the ClevelandLloyd Dinosaur Quarry underline Utah’s ongoing paleontological significance. There are probably more paleontologists residing and working in Utah now than at any time in the past, and the state even has an official dinosaur, the Allosaurus.


Dinosaurs of Utah Second Edition

An updated edition of the popular work that has enchanted and educated all ages about dinosaurs in Utah

Frank DeCourten Paintings by Carel Brest van Kempen Color photographs by John Telford and Frank DeCourten

Praise for the first edition: “Of books on dinosaurs there are many, but this one aims at a wider target. The book is carefully constructed and is immensely aided by its abundant illustrations.” —Scientific American

More than one hundred of author Frank DeCourten’s meticulous line drawings illustrate fossil remains and various features of dinosaur anatomy, as do five stunning paintings by Carel Brest van Kempen. More than forty color landscape photographs by John Telford and Frank DeCourten show modern geologic contexts in most parts of the state and emphasize the dynamic nature of the region’s geologic history. There is also a series of detailed maps, including several new to this edition, that show the tremendous topographical shifts that occurred within the Mesozoic era from the early Triassic to the late Cretaceous periods, a span of over 175 million years.

“A beautiful book, with lots of truly stunning drawings and photos. You’ll have a hard time putting it down.” —The Times Independent (Moab)

“This ambitious book will satisfy anyone who has ever wondered what things were like when dinosaurs roamed the earth.” —Library Journal

This second edition of Dinosaurs of Utah enlivens our understanding of these amazing vanished creatures by explaining them and their world to us. It moves beyond the often superficial representations that have been so prevalent and more accurately portrays the variety of dinosaurs that once roamed the region now known as Utah.

When construction of the Madeira-Mamoré Railroad began in 1867, Bolivia had lost its war with Chile, causing it to become landlocked and unable to ship its minerals and other products from the Pacific Coast. Since Bolivia needed to find a way to move products from the Atlantic Coast, the government decided a railroad should be built around the Madeira River—which originates in Bolivia and travels almost 2,000 miles through Brazil to the Amazon—facilitating shipment to foreign markets via the Amazonian waterway. Completion of the railroad was initially stalled by lack of funding, but the project was resurrected in the early twentieth century and completed in 1912. Intended as an integral piece of the rubber export industry, the railroad became unnecessary once the world supply of rubber moved from Brazil to Asia. Although there have been many brief chronicles and writings about the Madeira-Mamoré Railroad over the years, most barely scratch the surface of this incredible story. Of particular import in Tracks in the Amazon are the photographs—which until now have rarely been seen—taken by Dana Merrill, a New York photographer hired to document the construction of the railroad. It also includes reproductions of the Porto Velho Marconigram, an English-language newspaper written for and by the American expatriates who lived in the construction headquarters at Porto Velho. Because this unique railroad traversed the densest tropical jungle on earth, more than 10,000 workers lost their lives laying the first five miles of track. The images and descriptions of the life of the workers on the railroad illustrate the challenges of working in the jungles—the unforgiving climate, malaria and yellow feverbearing mosquitoes, and the threat of wild animals—which made conditions for the workers next to impossible.

An engaging storyteller brings to life true stories from Grand Canyon’s human history

Canyon of Dreams Stories from Grand Canyon History Don Lago

In 1928 astronomer Edwin Hubble came to the canyon to test it as a site for the world’s greatest observatory. In the 1960s the Apollo astronauts hiked into the canyon to learn geology in preparation for lunar explorations. Famous writers and poets have looked to the canyon to find the meanings of nature and God. Dreamers turned a 1909 newspaper hoax into an elaborate myth about ancient Egyptian tombs in the canyon. Canyon of Dreams tells these and other stories, including that of Brighty the burro, who inspired a classic children’s novel, and the story of a teenaged Roger Miller, who spent a summer living in a trailer and “pushin’ broom” at the canyon, leading to his song “King of the Road.” Newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst’s fight against the National Park Service to retain property he owned on the canyon rim is another illuminating tale. Despite being little known in the official annals of Grand Canyon history, the fight served as a pivotal moment in the much broader struggle between promoters of wilderness conquest and those advocating for preservation. This eclectic compilation runs the gamut from the idiosyncratic to the landmark, the mythical to the empirical, and everything in between. The narratives are captivating and sure to appeal to readers interested in the Grand Canyon’s long and complex history. The work is thoroughly researched and will prove a valuable contribution to historical scholarship. Canyon of Dreams sheds light on many obscure aspects of the canyon and takes readers on rollicking adventures in the process.

Don Lago has spent twenty-five years exploring the Grand Canyon, having kayaked it six times and backpacked it more than sixty times. He has extensively researched Grand Canyon history and has made archaeological discoveries during his years of backcountry research. Lago is the author of numerous articles and of the bestselling book, Grand Canyon Trivia. “The author presents here—largely for the first time—several independent narratives that relate to historical events at Grand Canyon. What makes them stand out from all previous works is that most of the narratives embrace events that are little known, incompletely known, or known previously only through undocumented oral tradition. With respect to other works in its field, Lago’s work is unique.” —Earle Spamer,author of Bilbiography of the   Grand Canyon and the Lower Colorado River

Saints Observed Studies of Mormon Village Life, 1850–2005 Howard M. Bahr

Howard M. Bahr is a professor of sociology at Brigham Young University, where he teaches social theory, the sociology of religion, and ethnic relations. His recent books include Toward More FamilyCentered Family Sciences: Love, Sacrifice, and Transcendence (with Kathleen S. Bahr) and The Navajo as Seen by the Franciscans, 1920–1950. Together these two volumes provide a ­thorough introduction to and overview of ethnographic study of Mormon culture as well as four classic studies that represent the Mormon village genre at its best. Mormon Studies/Folklore Studies

February 2014 288 pp., 6 x 9 15 illus.

The most complete overview and assessment of Mormon village studies available, this volume extends the canon twofold. First, it presents a rich composite view of nineteenth-century Mormon life in the West as seen by qualified observers who did not just pass through but stopped and studied. Second, it connects that early protoethnography to scholarly Mormon village studies in the twentieth century, showing their proper context in the ­thriving field of community studies. Based mostly on nine famous travelers’ accounts of life among the Mormons, including Richard Burton, Elizabeth Kane, Howard Stansbury, John Gunnison, and Julius Brenchley—Bahr’s volume introduces these talented ­observers, summarizes and analyzes their observation, and constructs a ­holistic overview of Mormon village life. He concludes by tracing the rise and continuity of Mormon village studies in the twentieth century, beginning with Lowry Nelson’s 1923 research in Escalante, Utah. Over the following three decades, the genre expanded beyond Nelson and his students, becoming more sophisticated and interdisciplinary; by the mid-1950s it was a subfield within the respected arena of community studies. Researchers continued to study Mormon communities in the following decades and into the twenty-first century.

Saints Observed: Studies of Mormon Village Life, 1850–2005 serves as a comprehensive introduction to this second volume, which makes available four of the best Mormon village studies, all previously unpublished. These postwar village studies differ substantially from earlier village studies initiated by Nelson’s work and offer in-depth investigations by observers who lived and participated in village life. Together, they capture in rich detail the dayto-day life of mid-century Mormon villagers. Editor Howard Bahr’s afterword highlights changes in the four villages across the past half-century, drawing upon recent site visits, interviews, and texts.

The American Southwest is characterized by environmentally and culturally diverse landscapes, which include the northern Rio Grande valley as it cuts through north-central New Mexico from Taos to Albuquerque. The region has a long and rich history of anthropological research primarily focused on the archaeological remains found along this valley corridor. Only recently has research involving large-scale surveys and excavations been conducted on the nearby mesas and mountains that form the rugged margins of the river valley. From Mountain Top to Valley Bottom incorporates this new research into a perspective that links the ever-changing and complementary nature of lowland and upland land use. The essays in this collection are unified by three specific themes: landscape, movement, and technology. Landscape involves the ecological backdrop of the northern Rio Grande valley, including past and present environments. Movement refers to the positioning of people across the landscape along with the dynamic and fluid nature with which people—past and present—view their relationship with the “above” and “below.” Technology not only refers to the tools and facilities that past people may have used but to the organization of labor needed to cooperatively exploit a variety of subsistence resources and the exchange of products across the region. This volume provides both a cross section of current research from expert scholars and a broad perspective that seeks to integrate new data from lowland and upland contexts. From Mountain Top to Valley Bottom will appeal to those interested in obsidian source studies, geoarchaeology, past climatic regimes, foraging societies, early agriculture, ceramic technology, subsistence, early village formation, ethnogenesis, and historic multi­ ethnic economies.

Roads in the Wilderness

Orders: 800-621-2736

Analyzes the critical role of roads and clashing worldviews in historical fights over wilderness in southern Utah and Northern Arizona

Conflict in Canyon Country Jedediah S. Rogers

Rogers reflects on the meaning of roads amid environmental conflicts that continue to grip the canyon country. Transporting readers from road controversies like the infamous Burr Trail battle to the contentious web of roads in Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument to off-roading in Arch Canyon, Rogers demonstrates how the conflicts are deeply rooted in history and culture. The first permanent Anglo-American settlers in the region were Mormon pioneers and current views about land and resource use in southern Utah often derive from stories about how those pioneer ancestors defied wilderness to found their communities in the desert. Roads in the Wilderness will be of interest to environmentalists, historians, and those who live in the American West, challenging readers to think about the canyon country and the stories embedded in the land.

Jedediah S. Rogers received his PhD in American history from Arizona State University and is a historian with Historical Research Associates, Inc. in Missoula, Montana. He is editor of In the President’s Office: The Diaries of L. John Nuttall, 1879– 1892, winner of the Evans Handcart Award from Utah State University and the Best Documentary Book Award from the Mormon History Association. “A fresh and engaging contribution to environmental history, especially for its interpretation of the Mormon cultural heritage as a driving force for the economic development of the Utah hinterlands. Rogers’s work shows how cultural imperatives arising out of the nineteenth-century settlement period, including memories of the 1879 to 1880 Bluff–San Juan expedition, gave roads their lasting and significant meaning in the minds of many contemporary residents.” —Frederick H.

The canyon country of southern Utah and northern Arizona—a celebrated desert of rock and sand punctuated by gorges and mesas—is a region hotly contested among vying and disparate interests, from industrial developers to wilderness preservation advocates. Roads are central to the conflicts raging in an area perceived as one of the last large roadless places in the continental United States. The canyon country in fact contains an extensive network of dirt trails and roads, many originally constructed under the authority of a one-sentence statute in an 1866 mining law, later known as R.S. 2477. While well-groomed and paved roads came to signify the industrialization of the modern age, twentiethcentury conservationists have regarded roads as intrusive human imprints on the nation’s wild lands. Roads connect rural communities, spur economic growth, and in some cases blend harmoniously into the landscape, but they also fracture and divide, disturb wildlife and habitat, facilitate industrial development, and spoil wilderness.

The Prehistory of Gold Butte uses a theoretical perspective rooted in human behavior ecology and other foraging models to present the results of one of the largest and most comprehensive archaeological investigations ever undertaken in southern Nevada, involving the systematic survey of more than 31,000 acres, the documentation of more than 377 sites, and the excavation of nine prehistoric sites. Gold Butte—at the crossroads of the Mojave Desert, the Great Basin, and the Colorado Plateau in southern Nevada— has a 12,000-year record of human occupation with archaeological elements that can be traced to all three culture zones. Dramatic developments occurred in this area of the Desert West. Farmers suddenly appeared in the Virgin River basin about 1,600 years ago. At such iconic sites as Lost City, Main Ridge, and Mesa House, full village and agricultural life developed over the span of a few hundred years only to completely vanish by AD 1250 after a series of droughts and other cultural disruptions. The Patayan held sway for several hundred years, between AD 1100 and 1500, but didn’t advance much beyond the Colorado River corridor. Finally, the Southern Paiute arrived and occupied not only the Virgin River basin and Gold Butte but much of the northwestern quadrant of the Southwest from at least the time of historic contact (AD 1500) to the present. This mix of cultures illustrates historical contingency, inplace development, and external relationships that should be expected along a boundary area such as Gold Butte. By looking at hinterlands adjoining the prehistoric settlements that clustered along the Virgin River corridor before, during, and after the Puebloan period, the authors suggest that changes in ­settlement-subsistence and lifeways at core settlements along the riverine corridor have corresponding effects on the character and intensity of hinterland occupation.

Considers the human adaptation of the earliest people to inhabit Colorado’s Middle Park

The First Rocky Mountaineers Coloradans before Colorado Marcel Kornfeld

The first inhabitants of Rocky Mountain high country left a rich record of shelters, tools, and projectile points as well as food residues in the form of bison bone, all dating between 12,000 and 9,000 years ago. This record provides a robust database for interpreting their lifeways and unique adaptations. Kornfeld offers the first treatment of the original Middle Park and Rocky Mountain human populations from a biocultural perspective. This approach suggests that both biological and cultural processes frame the outcome of a successful human adaptation. While such a process may be resisted by some anthropologists investigating low-elevation groups, it is essential when trying to understand the dynamics of those living in the high country.

Marcel Kornfeld is a professor of anthropology at the University of Wyoming. During nearly forty years of research he has written ten books and numerous articles about Rocky Mountain and Plains archaeology and prehistory. He works closely with avocational archaeologists throughout North America and is the coeditor (with Mary Lou Larson and George C. Frison) of Hell Gap: A Stratified Paleoindian Campsite at the Edge of the Rockies (The University of Utah Press, 2009). “A significant contribution. Rocky Mountain archaeology long received short shrift, yet now that more and more scientists are engaging in it we are learning much more than we could have imagined a half-­ century ago about the range of forager adaptations in North American settings.” —Bonnie Pitblado,author of Late Paleoindian   Occupation of the Southern Rocky Mountains

NEW BOOKS archaeology/anthropology

Based on archaeological research in Colorado’s Middle Park—a high mountain basin initially encountered by Europeans in the early 1800s and occupied for centuries by the Ute people—The First Rocky Mountaineers is a prehistory of the earliest people of the region at the conclusion of the Ice Age. The Utes and their predecessors lived and thrived for 12,000 years in this high mountain setting, an environment that demanded unique adaptive strategies because of cold stress and hypoxic conditions. People of Middle Park coped with some of the most extreme conditions of any prehistoric population in North America, dealing with the stressors of high elevations and low temperatures by intensifying food acquisition, constructing shelters, and tailoring sophisticated warm clothing. The archaeological record of these early Coloradans, while still meager, provides a wealth of information about lifeways in the Rocky Mountain high country.

An updated edition of the essential reference for the study of ground stone artifacts

A copublication with Archaeology Southwest

Ground Stone Analysis A Technological Approach Second Edition

Jenny L. Adams


Praise for the first edition: “Adams is to be commended for having produced a well-organized and thoroughly documented manual based on her own quarter-century of hard work and thoughtful deliberation. The book is worth careful study by anyone faced with description and interpretation of assemblages of stone artifacts whose forms were created or altered by grinding, abrading, or polishing.” —Lithic Technology

Archaeologists define stone artifacts that are altered by or used to alter other items through abrasion, pecking, or polishing as “ground stone.” This includes mortars and pestles, abraders, polishers stones, and hammerstones, and artifacts shaped by abrasion or pecking, such as axes, pipes, figurines, ornaments, and architectural pieces. The first edition of Ground Stone Analysis sparked interest around the world. In the decade following its publication, there have been many advances in scientific technology and developments in ethnographic and experimental research. The second edition incorporates these advances, including examples of international research that have utilized a technological approach to ground stone analysis. This study presents a flexible yet structured method for analyzing and classifying stone artifacts. These techniques record important attributes based on design, manufacturing, and use and are applicable to any collection in the world. The methods presented guide quantitative and qualitative assessments of artifacts and assemblages. Recording forms and instructions for completing them will be available on the University of Utah Press’s open access portal at Ground Stone Analysis is an important, useful reference for any archaeological field worker or student who encounters ground stone artifacts and is interested in learning more about the people who used them.

California’s Channel Islands

Orders: 800-621-2736

Definitive analyses of these unique Pacific coast islands and their inhabitants

The Archaeology of Human-Environment Interactions Edited by Christopher S. Jazwa and Jennifer E. Perry

Tracing the human occupation of the islands from the e ­ arliest settlement at the end of the Pleistocene by marine-adapted ­foragers with sophisticated stone tool technologies to the tragic story of historic depopulation continuing into the nineteenth century, contributors discuss topics including human settlement patterns on small and large scales, prehistoric trails, the use of plant resources, and ceremonialism. They also address the decisions that people made when confronted with diverse and changing environments. By focusing on distinct aspects of human relationships with California’s Channel Islands through time, they tell a story of settlement, subsistence, and ritual on the coastal edge of western North America. This compendium of scholarship condenses decades of excavation and analysis into a single, illuminating volume that will be indispensable for those interested in the Channel Islands or New World history or archaeology.

Christopher S. Jazwa is a PhD candidate in anthropology at Pennsylvania State University. Jennifer E. Perry is an anthropology professor at California State University, Channel Islands. She is a coauthor of The Punta Arena Site and Early and Middle Holocene Cultural Development on Santa Cruz Island, California. “This is a significant contribution because it gathers into one publication a great deal of information that might otherwise be difficult to obtain, including the initial population of the New World, use of plants (surprisingly well preserved on the islands back into the early Holocene), a rich record of ritual behavior, and much else.” —Robert G.

California’s Channel Islands are a chain of eight islands that extend along the state’s southern coastline from Santa Barbara’s Point Conception to the Mexican border. Popular tourist destinations today, these islands once supported some of the earliest human populations in the Americas; archaeological evidence of maritime Paleo-Indian settlements on the northern islands dates back some 13,000 years. The indigenous peoples of the islands—the Chumash of the northern islands and the Tongva of the southern islands— thrived into historic times by relying upon the abundance and diversity of marine and terrestrial resources available to them. California’s Channel Islands presents a definitive archaeological investigation of these unique islands and their inhabitants, and is the first publication to discuss the islands and their peoples holistically rather than individually or by subgroup.

Archaeology in the Great Basin and Southwest is a compilation of papers by friends and colleagues that honor Don D. Fowler. The volume encompasses the breadth and depth of Fowler’s work in archaeology and sister disciplines with original scholarship on the human past of the arid west. Included are theoretical, methodological, and empirical papers that synthesize and present fresh perspectives on Great Basin and Southwest archaeology and cover a sweep of topics from Paleoindian research to collaboration with Native Americans. Fowler has continually reminded scholars that to understand the past we must know how the local and specific is regionally and transculturally contextualized, how what we know came to be recognized, studied, and interpreted—in short, how the past still affects the present—and how regional and topical archaeology is part of a disciplinary endeavor that is as concerned with rigorous and inclusive knowledge production as it is with site description and cultural syntheses. Readers will learn about the nature of archaeological careers, how archaeology has been conceptualized and conducted, the strengths and limitations of past and present approaches, and the institution building and political processes in which archaeologists engage. Contributors posit new thoughts designed to stimulate new lines of research and reflect on the state of our current knowledge about a wealth of topics. Each paper asks four questions about what Great Basin and southwestern archaeologists currently know: Where have we been? Where are we now? What do we still need to learn? Where are we going? This comprehensive volume will be of interest to those practicing or teaching archaeology and to students seeking to understand the intricacies of Great Basin and Southwest archaeology.


Religious Knowledge, Authority, and Charisma

Orders: 800-621-2736

An innovative volume that examines the sources and types of religious authority throughout history and across Islamic and Judaic cultures

Islamic and Jewish Perspectives Edited by Daphna Ephrat and Meir Hatina Foreword by Dale F. Eickelman

Contributors tease out the sources and types of authority that emerged out of the Sunni and Shiʾi milieu and the evolution of Muslim elites who served as formulators and disseminators of knowledge and practice. Comparative insights are provided by the examination of ideological and historical developments among Jewish sages who inculcated similar modes of authority from within their traditions. The rigorous exploration of the dynamic interface of knowledge and power in Islam and Judaism serves to highlight a number of present tensions common to both religions. By intertwining a historical span that traces trajectories of continuity and change, integrative discussion of cross-sectional themes, and comparative perspectives, this volume makes a distinct contribution. “Makes a significant contribution to scholarship across several disciplines, including Islamic studies and Jewish studies, of course, but also history, anthropology, the sociology of religion, and political science.” —Patrick D. Gaffney, University of Notre Dame

Daphna Ephrat is associate professor of Islamic history in the Department of History, Philosophy, and Jewish Studies at the Open University of Israel. She is the author of A Learned Society in a Period of Transition and Spiritual Wayfarers, Leaders in Piety, and coauthor of the Israeli Open University series Introduction to Islam. Meir Hatina is associate professor in the Department of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies and director of the Levtzion Center for Islamic Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The issue of religious authority has long fascinated and ignited scholars across a range of disciplines: history, anthropology, the sociology of religion, and political science. Religious Knowledge, Authority, and Charisma juxtaposes religious leadership in premodern and modern Islam with examples from the Judaic tradition. By illustrating various iterations of authority in numerous historical and cultural contexts, this volume offers fresh insights into the nature of institutions of learning and other systems of establishing and disseminating authority, the mechanisms for cultivating committed adherents, and the processes by which religious leadership is polarized and fragmented.

Second volume in a multi-volume series of lectures about Persian culture

Reza Ali Khazeni Memorial Lectures in Iranian Studies Volume Two, Crafting the Intangible: Persian Literature and Mysticism Edited by Peter J. Chelkowski


J. T. P. De Bruijn, Introduction Ahmad Karimi-Hakkak, “The Mystical Master Narrative in Persian Literature” Annemarie Schimmel, “Death as the Gateway to Life in the Eyes of the Sufis” William C. Chittick, “The Evolutionary Psychology of Jalai al-Din Rumi” William Hanaway, “Poetry in Ruins: Two Classical Traditions Encounter the Exotic” Peter Chelkowski, “Dramatic Buildup in Nezam I’s Khosrow and Shirin”

The Reza Ali Khazeni Lecture Series in Iranian Studies at the University of Utah began in 1995. Sponsored by the Reza Ali Khazeni Memorial Foundation, the Middle East Center, and the College of Humanities at the University of Utah, the lectures cover various aspects of Persian culture. This second volume in a multivolume series includes lectures that explore Iran’s cultural and artistic achievements and help to create greater understanding of Iranian contributions to world civilization.  Beginning with the earliest origins of the Persian state and culture, these lectures, primarily focusing on Persian literature and mysticism, cover 2,500 years of a glorious way of life. Poetry is part of the fabric of Iranian life, appreciated by all members of society regardless of educational background or social milieu. It is also the primary form in which Persian mysticism is expressed. Great poets such as Hafez, Sadi, and Rumi are guiding beacons for millions of Iranians. Over the millennia, more religions have sprung up in Iran than in any other country. Many have faded away, but the mystical vision has been constant in all of them and has been a persistent influence on Persian literature and culture for centuries. Peter J. Chelkowski is a professor of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies at New York University. He is the author of Ideology and Power in the Middle East; Ta’ziyah: Ritual and Drama in Iran; and Mirror of the Invisible World: Tales from the Khamseh of Nizami.

Todd M. Compton

Stephen G. Biddulph

Jacob Hamblin has long been one of the most enigmatic and polarizing figures in Mormon history. In this defining biography, Todd Compton reconstructs the fascinating life of the frontiersman, colonizer, missionary to the Indians, and explorer of the American West. Compton examines and disentangles many of the myths and controversies surrounding this well-known figure. A Frontier Life provides a rich narrative that fleshes out the many nuances of a life lived on the Mormon frontier.

Yellowstone has undergone a number of transitions in the 140 years since its national park designation in 1872. Five Old Men of Yellowstone recounts one such transition—from recreational playground to outdoor classroom where active learning processes supplanted passive experiences. Tasked with instituting these interpretive interactions were five intrepid ranger naturalists who served as both protectors and educators. Stephen Biddulph tells the story of these five charismatic men in a masterfully woven narrative that provides a fascinating historical account of Yellowstone through charming colloquial storytelling.

shortly after the Mongol invasion. Its founder, Isma’il, took advantage of the chaotic political situation at the end of the fifteenth century to establish control over the territory that comprises most of current-day Iran. Safavid rulers established Shi’ism as the dominant ideology, the Muslim faith still observed by the majority of Iranians. Safavid Iran and Her Neighbors, which focuses primarily on Persian external relations during this period, includes wide-ranging contributions that cover dervish orders, the Central Asian hajj, developments in Shi’i legal theory, cultural relations between Persia and Mughal India, and diplomatic relations between Iran, Russia, and Ottoman Turkey.

Nels Anderson’s World War I Diary provides a rare glimpse into the wartime experiences of one of the most well-respected sociologists of the twentieth century, the renowned author of The Hobo (1920) and Desert Saints: The Mormon Frontier in Utah (1942). A keen observer of people, places, and events his entire life, Anderson joined the U.S. Army in 1918 at the age of 29 and was sent to Europe to fight with the Allied Expeditionary Force under General Pershing. His diary remains the only known account of war service during WWI by a member of the LDS Church. His riveting descriptions provide a rare introspective glimpse of life on the front lines. Allan Kent Powell recently retired as managing editor of the Utah Historical Quarterly and as senior state historian at the Utah State Historical Society. He is the author of Splinters of a Nation: German Prisoners of War in Utah and editor of A German Odyssey: The Journal of a German Prisoner of War. 336 pp., 6 x 9 19 b/w photos, 2 maps Cloth 978-1-60781-255-5 $34.95 Ebook 978-1-60781-256-2

The motivating force behind this volume was to document Snow’s “visual language”—forged early in his career from abstract expressionist influences typified by Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, and Franz Kline, among others. Final Light represents the first book to examine the legacy of this significant Utah educator and painter. Renowned scholars, writers, and activists who are familiar with Snow’s work recount personal experiences with the artist and delve into his motives, methods, and reputation.

With an estimated 10,000 ancient rock art sites, Nine Mile Canyon has long captivated people the world over. The 45-mile-long canyon, dubbed the “World’s Longest Art Gallery,” hosts what is believed to be the largest concentration of rock art in North America. Through the words and thoughts of the archaeologists as well as the more than 150 photos, readers will come to see the canyon as an American treasure unlike any other. As the first book that is devoted exclusively to the archaeology of this unique place, Nine Mile Canyon will be fascinating reading for scholars and the general public alike.

Holiday Gift Guide Seven Summers A Naturalist Homesteads in the Modern West Julia Corbett Seven Summers is the story of a naturalist-turned-professor who flees city life each summer with her pets and power tools to pursue her lifelong dream—building a cabin in the Wyoming woods. Along the way, she also gains a better understanding of her fellow Wyomingites, a mix of ranchers, builders, gas workers, and developers, who share a love of place while often holding decidedly different values. With little money and even less experience, Corbett learns that creating a sanctuary on her mountain meadow requires ample doses of faith, patience, and luck. Julia Corbett is a professor of communication at the University of Utah, where she writes both academic work and creative nonfiction about human relationships with the natural world. 288 pp., 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Paper 978-1-60781-249-4 $19.95 Ebook 978-1-60781-250-0

Gravity Hill A Memoir Maximilian Werner “The sound of parenthood is the sigh.” So begins Gravity Hill, written from the perspective of a new father seeking hope, beauty, and meaning in an uncertain world. Many memoirs recount the author’s experiences growing up and struggling with their demons; Werner’s shows how old demons can sometimes return on the heels of raising children. Werner narrates his struggle growing up in suburban Utah as a non-Mormon and what it took for him, his siblings, and his friends to feel like they belonged, indulging in each other and sometimes in destructive behaviors. Gravity Hill is infused with humor, honesty, and reflection, a literary memoir that is the story of the author’s descent into and eventual emergence from dysfunction and pain to a newfound life.
