The St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm Jerald D. Harris and Andrew R. C. Milner


n February 2000, while excavating his property in St. George, Utah, Sheldon Johnson turned over a piece of

ground and discovered a fully preserved dinosaur footprint. That track was the first of many fossils to be uncovered. Five years later, the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site (SGDS) at Johnson Farm was established to preserve one of the richest and oldest dinosaur-age fossil sites in Utah. Tracks in Deep Time presents, for the first time, an engaging, thoroughly readable account of the history, geology, and paleontology of this important site. Two hundred million years ago, Lake Dixie covered this area. Within its waters and along its shores, a diverse ecosystem of organisms thrived, leaving behind thousands of footprints and other fossils preserved in layers of rock. Unusual fossils found here include the world’s largest collection of tracks left by swimming dinosaurs, and one of only six traces known to have been made by a sitting,

Last Chance Byway The History of Nine Mile Canyon

Jerry D. Spangler and Donna Kemp Spangler


ine Mile Canyon is famous the world over for its prehistoric rock art and remnants of ancient Fremont

habitation. But it also teems with Old West history that is salted with iconic figures of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Last Chance Byway tells the stories of human endeavor and folly in a place historians have too long ignored. The history of Nine Mile Canyon is often the story of those who came with dreams and left broke and disillusioned, although there were exceptions. Some who left their mark include famed outlaw hunter Joe Bush, infamous bounty hunter Jack Watson, the larger-than-life cattle baron Preston Nutter, and Robert Leroy Parker, better known as Butch Cassidy.

They pervade mass media and the digital world and often form the stuff of hypermodern folklore—the stew of folk, popular, consumer, and digital culture that constitutes much of contemporary life. People also imbue specific places—from the local haunted house or cemetery to whole towns or cities—with supernatural manifestations or significance.

Bridging the Distance Common Issues of the Rural West

Edited by David B. Danbom  Foreword by David Kennedy

place where many ways of life can flourish. But it is also a region that leaves some people isolated both culturally and geographically. The essays collected here, the results of a 2012 conference, consider the problems and prospects of the rural West and its residents. The issues are considered in four sections—Defining the Rural West, Community, Economy, and Land Use— each with an introduction by editor David Danbom. They highlight factors that set the region apart from the rest of the country and provide varied perspectives on challenges faced by those living in often remote areas, including the shortcomings of rural health care, disagreements about the

The Impact of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe on the Pueblos of the Rio Grande, 1880–1930 Richard H. Frost


ichard Frost examines the profound effects that the coming of trains had on Pueblo Indians in New

Mexico’s Rio Grande Valley, where their arrival was a social and cultural tsunami. It affected community autonomy, privacy, and well-being and destroyed or damaged crops, livestock, and irrigation ditches. The trains brought lawyers, speculators, politicians, missionaries, anthropologists, timber thieves, health seekers, and government servants. While the trains also brought farm tools, clothing for children, and customers for Pueblo pottery, these were comparatively marginal benefits. The pueblos responded variously, though mostly conservatively, to sustain their communities, and this book spotlights two very different responses.

A Kingdom Transformed

Early Mormonism and the Modern LDS Church Gordon Shepherd and Gary Shepherd


o survive in an often disapproving society, the LDS Church has made adaptive changes in belief, practice,

and organization over time. Gordon and Gary Shepherd elucidate these changes through statistical analyses of the rhetoric found in proceedings of the church’s semiannual General Conference.

This new edition revises that work and adds to it by examining the subsequent thirty years of conference talks, revealing what new trends have emerged.

and for her remarkable vision of what Mormon women in the Relief Society could achieve. Yet today her name is barely known. This volume introduces her to a new generation, showing how the accomplishments of Lyman and her peers benefitted subsequent generations. Dave Hall examines the roots and trajectory of Mormon women’s activism. Lyman entered public life at a time when the practice of polygamy was ending and Mormonism was assimilating mainstream trends.

explores how using this perspective can help archaeologists better understand the past. Traditional representational approaches reflect modern or Western perspectives, which focus on the individual and see the world in terms of dichotomies that separate culture and nature, human and object, sacred and secular. In contrast, ancient societies saw themselves as connected to and entangled with other human and nonhuman entities.

Late Holocene Research on Foragers and Farmers in the Desert West Edited by Barbara J. Roth and Maxine E. McBrinn


his book brings together the work of archaeologists investigating prehistoric hunter-gatherers (foragers) and

early farmers in both the Southwest and the Great Basin. Most previous work on this topic has been regionally specific, with researchers from each area favoring a different theoretical approach and little shared dialogue. Here the studies of archaeologists working in both the Southwest and the Great Basin are presented side by side to illustrate the similarities in environmental challenges and cultural practices of the prehistoric peoples who lived in these areas and to explore common research questions addressed by both regions. Three main themes link these papers: the role of the environment in shaping prehistoric behavior, flexibility

The Archaeology and Rock Art of Swordfish Cave University of Utah Anthropological Paper No. 129

Clayton G. Lebow, Douglas R. Harro, and Rebecca L. McKim With contributions by Carole Denardo, Jill Onken, Ann M. Munns, and Rick Bury


wordfish Cave is a well-known rock art site located on Vandenberg Air Force Base in south-central California.

Named for the swordfish painted on its wall, the cave is a sacred Chumash site. When it was under threat and required measures to conserve it, nearly all of the cave’s interior was excavated to create a rock art viewing area. That effort revealed previously unknown rock art and made it possible to closely examine how early occupants used the space inside the cave. Archaeologists identified three periods of human use, including an initial occupation around 3,550 years ago, an occupation about 660 years later, and a final

therein, the book presents a rare opportunity to directly link archaeology and rock art and to examine the spatial organization of prehistoric human habitation.

“Well written and meticulous, the book will be of interest to broad audiences for its unusual combination of protection, conservation, and mitigation efforts focused simultaneously on both cave art and cave deposits. A tremendously important contribution.” The Prehistory of Gold Butte A Virgin River Hinterland, Clark County, Nevada Kelly McGuire, William Hildebrandt, Amy Gilreath, Jerome King, and John Berg Paper 978-1-60781-305-7 $50.00s

World War I and the Ottoman State Edited by M. Hakan Yavuz with Feroz Ahmad


  ar and Collapse is the third volume in a series that covers the last years of the Ottoman Empire. It stems

from a three-day international conference at which scholars examined the causes and consequences of World War I, with a focus on how these events pertained to the Ottoman state and society. Fifty-three scholars—both new and established—contributed to this collection, explaining what happened within the Ottoman Empire before and during WWI and how ethnic and national groups constructed these events to enhance their identities and promote their interests. The chapters provide insight into the mindsets of Ottoman peoples, showing how earlier events and circumstances set in motion Ottoman responses to the war and how continued conflict had devastating, irreversible effects on Ottoman society. What emerges is a comprehensive picture of the events, encompassing a wide variety of perspectives.

An unprecedented scholarly effort surveys the important but neglected role and consequences of World War I for the Ottoman state “In a field of growing interest, this volume will be useful for those wishing to learn more. It is by far the most compendious assemblage of relevant material.” Also of Interest

—Norman Stone, author of The Eastern Front 1914–1917

“This collection of new and old approaches reveals that there is still much to be said about World War I that requires an Ottoman angle. The field is richer because of this valuable addition to the scholarship.” —Isa Blumi, author of Reinstating the Ottoman Empire

Grave Goods

Essays of a Peculiar Nature John P. O’Grady


ust because this is a collection of essays about psychics, murderers, strange disappearances, and occult

phenomena doesn’t mean it isn’t funny. With wit, wry curiosity, and redemptive irony, John P. O’Grady peels back the surface of the seemingly normal to reveal the dubious, the inexplicable, and the outlandish. Grave Goods includes ghost stories, macabre modern legends, and metaphysical investigations, all informed by the natural sciences, history, philosophy, literature, and mythology. From laugh-out-loud funny to eerily thoughtful, these essays reveal the natural world as a place of unnatural surprises and strange beauty, a place where Rip Van Winkle, O’Grady’s college buddies, and ragtag psychics rub shoulders with Buddha, Socrates, and Stephen King—and it all makes perfect sense.

Essays filled with unnatural surprises and strange beauty “Reading this book is like walking through the world with a highly knowledgable naturalist-poet-philosopher. I don’t know your taste in journeys, but this book is mine.” —Peter Coyote, poet and actor Also of Interst

“Grave Goods is a first-rate collection, revealing not only the surprising connections between ordinary things, but their metaphysical and philosophical implications as well.

Narrated by Ali MacGraw


ild horses are romantic symbols of the Old West, an era that is fading from memory. From being one of

the most recognizable icons of the western landscape to playing essential roles in therapy programs, two thing are clear: the role of wild horses in America is multifaceted, and they need to be protected. But there are ecological issues that surround the wild mustang and, like the animal, they’re complex. Wild horses are part of the American story and a staple of our history, having helped Native Americans hunt buffalo and cowboys herd cattle. However, wild horses have encountered adversity when confronted with modernity, since they compete with livestock for range resources, including watering holes and grazing. Former Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has noted that, while beautiful, wild horses pose significant problems for public lands.

Explore the beauty and controversy of wild horses in a new KUED documentary When the horse population is determined to be too high, the Bureau of Land Management is tasked with removing surplus horses, a process that often runs into logistical snags. Also from KUED

When helicopters are used to round up the herds, wild horse advocates see it as inhumane. Once rounded up, there are additional problems of what should be done with the animals, especially when the horse population outpaces adoption demand. The discussion includes detainment in taxpayer-funded holding facilities, sterilization, even euthanasia. With passionate, vocal voices on all sides, these complex issues require multipronged solutions. The film visits various therapy programs, including

the one offered by the National Ability Center in Park City, which has found that veterans and others benefit from friendships with horses. Mustangs are also used in prison and young adult rehabilitation programs, and can teach valuable lessons in bonding and patience. Wild Horses of the West is the latest production by KUED’s John Howe, and is narrated by Ali MacGraw of Love Story and The Getaway fame.

Kenneth R. Beesley and Dirk Elzinga In 1859 Brigham Young sent two Mormon missionaries to live among the Hopi and instructed the men to teach the Hopi the Deseret Alphabet. While the alphabet faded out of use in just over twenty years, the manuscript penned by one of the missionaries has remained in existence. For decades it sat unidentified in the archives of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—a mystery document having no title, author, or date. But authors Beesley and Elzinga have now traced the manuscript’s origin to those missionaries of 1859 and decoded its Hopi-English vocabulary written in the shortlived Deseret Alphabet. The resulting book offers a fascinating mix of linguistics, Mormon history, and Native American studies. 176 pp., 6 x 9
