The Awkward State of Utah Coming of Age in the Nation, 1896–1945 Charles S. Peterson and Brian Q. Cannon

A thorough and engaging account of Utah’s first fifty years of statehood The half century between statehood in 1896 and the end of World War II in 1945 was a period of transformation and transition for Utah. This book interprets those profound changes, revealing sweeping impacts on both institutions and ordinary people. Drawing upon expertise honed over decades of teaching, researching, and writing about Utah’s history, the authors incorporate fresh archival sources, new oral histories, and hundreds of scholarly articles and books as they narrate the little-known story of the crucial formative years when Utah came of age. During its sometimes awkward years of adolescence and matusocial, and economic mainstream. Urban and industrial influences supplanted agrarian traditions, displacing people socially, draining the countryside of population, and galvanizing a critical crisis in values and self-identification. National corporations and mass labor movements took root in the state as commerce expanded. Involvement in world events such as the Spanish-American War, two world wars, and the Great Depression further set the stage for entry into the modern, globalized world as Utahns immersed themselves in national politics and became part of the democratic, corporate culture of twentieth-century America.

Where Roads Will Never Reach Wilderness and Its Visionaries in the Northern Rockies Frederick H. Swanson

How the courageous actions of citizens in Idaho and Montana saved some of America’s largest wilderness areas The Rocky Mountains of Idaho and Montana are home to some of the most important remaining American wilderness areas, preserved because of citizens who stood against massive development schemes that would have diminished important wildlife habitats and the abiding sense of remoteness found in such places. Where Roads Will Never Reach tells the stories of hunters, anglers, outfitters,


scientists, and other concerned citizens who devoted themselves

“Offers a provocative, stimulating, and engaging study of the history of wilderness and of the efforts to protect wilderness areas. The author has delved deeply into this subject and probed its major milestones, campaigns, and arenas.” —Mark Harvey, author of Wilderness Forever: Howard Zahniser and the Path to the Wilderness Act

“Outside of Alaska, the Northern Rocky Mountains are the absolute heart and soul of what’s left of primitive America. We owe a great deal of thanks to the many ordinary citizens and small handful of legislators who saved these tracts from extensive fragmentation during the frenzy of postwar industrial overdevelopment. And we owe Swanson our gratitude for telling their story in clear, direct, and readable prose.”

to protecting remnant wild lands and ecosystems in the Northern Rockies. Environmental historian Frederick Swanson argues that their heartfelt, dedicated work helped boost the American wilderness movement to its current prominence. Based on newly available archival sources and interviews with many of the participants, this groundbreaking study explores for the first time the grassroots campaigns that yielded some of the largest designated wilderness areas in America.  FREDERICK H. SWANSON writes about the wild landscapes of the West from his home in Salt Lake City. His books include The Bitterroot and Mr. Brandborg: Clearcutting and the Struggle for Sustainable Forestry in the Northern Rockies (University of Utah Press, 2011).

The Mapmakers of New Zion A Cartographic History of Mormonism Richard Francaviglia

How maps helped shape the Mormon experience and worldview From their earliest days on the American frontier through their growth into a worldwide church, the spatially expansive Mormons made maps to help them create idealized communities, migrate to and colonize large parts of the American West, visualize the stories in their sacred texts, and spread their message internationally through a well-organized missionary system. This book identifies many Mormon mapmakers who played an important but heretofore unsung role in charting the course of Latter-day Saint history. For Mormons, maps had and continue to have both practical and spiritual significance. In addition to using maps to help build their new Zion and to explore the Intermountain West, Latter-day Saint mapmakers used them to depict locations and events described in the Featuring over one hundred historical maps reproduced in full color—many never before published—The Mapmakers of New Zion sheds new light on Mormonism and takes readers on a fascinating journey through maps as both historical documents and touchstones of faith. RICHARD FRANCAVIGLIA, Professor Emeritus of History and Geography at the University of Texas at Arlington, has been interested in maps since childhood. His diverse publications include the recent Go East, Young Man: Imagining the American West as the Orient. He lives in Oregon where he teaches courses in religious studies at Willamette University.

Past and Future Yellowstones Finding Our Way in Wonderland Paul Schullery

Our keystone national park and how we redefine and recreate it Drawing on historical perspectives, personal excursions, and decades of professional research and work in the field, Paul Schullery illuminates many of the possible truths embedded within the natural and cultural reality that is Yellowstone National Park. By varying the scale of observation—from a single encounter between a cow elk and a grizzly bear to the sweeping forces of evolution— Schullery celebrates the park’s history and future potential as a laboratory of ideas. It is, as he states, a place with “layers of meaning waiting to be explored . . . many possible truths to be weighed.” He


thus invites us all to participate in the “Yellowstone conversation.” PAUL SCHULLERY began working as a ranger-naturalist in Yellowstone National Park and has since served as a historianarchivist, chief of cultural resources, and senior editor in the Yellowstone Center for Resources. He is the author, co-author, or editor of more than forty books and was an advisor for the Ken Burns film The National Parks (2009). He is currently scholar-inresidence at the Montana State University Library.

According to Schullery, national parks allow for the study of relatively unmanipulated ecological processes, even amidst civilization’s increasing influence. They act as reservoirs for water, wildlife, and essential wildness. The uncertainties inherent in wild landscapes and in the unfolding idea of Yellowstone allow scholarly and popular dialogues to advance management practices and public understanding. Through this inquiry, Schullery establishes a framework for approaching conservation and the experience of America’s great wildlands. Paul Schullery delivered this lecture on March 26, 2014, at the 19th annual symposium sponsored by the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment at the S. J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah.

Lost in the Yellowstone “Thirty-seven Days of Peril” and a Handwritten Account of Being Lost NEW EDITION

Truman Everts Edited by Lee H. Whittlesey

A new edition of a classic story of adventure and survival published for the first time with a handwritten record by Truman Everts In 1870, Truman Everts visited what would two years later become Yellowstone National Park, traveling with an exploration party intent on mapping and investigating that mysterious region. Scattered reports of a mostly unexplored wilderness filled with natural wonders had caught the public’s attention, and the fifty-four-year-old Everts, nearsighted and an inexperienced woodsman, had determined to join the expedition. He was soon separated from the rest of the party

over a month he wandered Yellowstone alone and injured, with little food, clothing, or other equipment. In “Thirty-seven Days of Peril” he recounted his experiences for the readers of Scribner’s Monthly. In June 1996, Everts’s granddaughter arrived at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park to meet with park archivist Lee Whittlesey. She brought two documents that her father had kept hidden and both were handwritten by Everts. One was a brief autobiography that gave new insight into his early life. The other was a never-published alternative account of his confused 1870 journey through Yellowstone. Both have been added to this volume, further enhancing Everts’s unlikely tale of survival. LEE H. WHITTLESEY is the Yellowstone National Park historian and the author of multiple books on the park, including Yellowstone Place Names and Storytelling in Yellowstone: Horse and Buggy Tour Guides.

Rediscovering National Parks in the Spirit of John Muir Michael Frome

Longtime environmental journalist Frome reflects on a lifetime of involvement with national parks As a journalist, advocate, and professor, Michael Frome has spent decades engaged with conservation topics and has taken particular interest in America’s national parks. He draws on this experience and knowledge to address what remains to be done in order to truly value and preserve these special places. Part memoir, part history, and part broadside against those who would diminish this heritage, Rediscovering National Parks in the Spirit of John Muir, through thoughtful reflections and ruminations, bears witness to the grandeur of our parks and to the need for a renewed sense of


appreciation and individual responsibility for their care.

“Very engaging. Frome is a significant figure in modern park and environmental history, having been preeminent as a journalist in the field for many, many years. What he thinks on these matters is worth pondering.” —Joseph L. Sax, author of Mountains without Handrails: Reflections on the National Parks

In recollections of his encounters and conversations with key people in national park history, Frome discusses park politics, conflicts between use and preservation, and impacts of commercialization. He proposes a dedicated return to the true spirit in which the parks were established, in the manner of John Muir. He advocates maintaining these lands as wild sanctuaries, places where we can find inspiration, solitude, silence, balance, and simplicity, reminding us why we must preserve our national treasures and why we need to connect with the deeper values they hold. MICHAEL FROME is an author, educator, and tireless champion of America’s natural heritage. He has been a featured columnist in the Los Angeles Times, Field & Stream, American Forests, and Defenders of Wildlife, and has written twenty-two books, including Battle for the Wilderness (1997) and Green Ink: An Introduction to Environmental Journalism (1998). In 1995 he retired from the faculty of Western Washington University, where he directed a pioneering program in environmental journalism and writing.

The Rival Sara Wallace

Poems exposing a woman’s life through experiences of devastation and transcendence In The Rival, Sara Wallace takes her readers on an intimate journey through a woman’s solitary, surreal rural childhood and her brutal, sexually fraught first marriage to the conflicted redemption she finds in motherhood and a second chance at love. In this debut poetry collection, Wallace reveals how closely emotional devastation and transcendence can coexist. The Rival is sensuous, darkly humorous, and frequently luminous in its unflinching exploration of the inner life. SARA WALLACE is the author of Edge, winner of the 2014 Center for Book Arts Chapbook Competition. Her work has appeared in such publications as Agni, Hanging Loose, Michigan Quarterly Review, Grand Street, and others. She teaches at New York University and

“Always in motion through a landscape in restless mimesis of the speaking self, these poems declare ‘I’m going to take you as far as I can.’ And Wallace’s unabashedly naked words lay bare hidden urgencies in that quest to arrive at some always shifting center. ‘This life, so redolent and stark / you’d split open if you stopped’ she tells us. This is a stunning debut collection.” —Peter Cooley, director of creative writing, Tulane University.

“Sara Wallace’s brilliantly conceived poetry is both searing and tender by turns. Visceral, fierce, and unapologetic, her poems confront the reader like a series of shattered mirrors. Operatic in scope yet incisive as a laser, this work will seize you—so be warned—and refuse to let go.”

“Sara Wallace is a poet of quiet extremes. The poetry is serious or breezy or written with the high art of a Mozart or Bach, and then it veers casually into the everyday when it must.  Wallace is an extraordinary poet, one who sees and feels everything and brings it to us beautiful and new. In The Rival she understands the deep mystery of the human experience and plays wildly and crafts seriously right there between reality and imagination, where the poetry is.  These are unforgettable poems.”

The Electric Edge of Academe The Saga of Lucien L. Nunn and Deep Springs College L. Jackson Newell Foreword by William T. Vollmann

The life story of a daring innovator, entrepreneur, and educational reformer Here is a look at the life and legacy of an irrepressible innovator. Pushing against both social convention and technological boundaries, L.L. Nunn left enduring marks on economic and social history, labor development, and educational reform. The Electric Edge of Academe is a bold portrayal of this progressive-era hydroelectric power magnate who, driven by a dynamic conscience, also became a force for social change and educational experimentation. In 1891, Nunn, working with Tesla and Westinghouse, pioneered current (AC) for long-distance transmission—something Thomas Edison deemed dangerous and irresponsible. After creating the Telluride Power Company, Nunn constructed the state-of-the-art Olmsted Power Plant in Provo Canyon and the Ontario Power Works at Niagara Falls. To support this new technology, he developed an imaginative model of industrial training that became so compelling that he ultimately abandoned his entrepreneurial career to devote his wealth and talents to experimenting with a new model of liberal education. In 1917, Nunn founded Deep Springs College in eastern California. The school remains one of the most daring, progressive, and selective institutions of higher learning in America. Newell examines how Nunn’s radical educational ideas have survived internal and external challenges for nearly a century and explores their relevance today. L. JACKSON NEWELL is Professor Emeritus of Educational Leadership at the University of Utah, where he was also dean of liberal education for sixteen years. He served as president of Deep Springs College from 1995 to 2004. His previous books include Maverick Colleges, Creating Distinctiveness: Lessons from Uncommon Colleges (with Barbara Townsend), and Matters of Conscience, a biography of Ster-

American Indian Treaties A Guide to Ratified and Unratified Colonial, United States, State, Foreign, and Intertribal Treaties and Agreements, 1607–1911 David H. DeJong

A comprehensive list of American Indian treaties and their historical context and meanings When it comes to American Indian treaties, the American polity too often forgets the realities of history. Prevailing perceptions are often not only inaccurate but also premised on outright falsehoods. Treaty-making was profoundly influenced by tribal conceptions of diplomacy. Colonial and early U.S. treaties especially were clothed in ritual, metaphor, and covenants that emphasized the sacred nature


and purpose of diplomacy and represented a time when tribal

“This volume stands out not only for the additional entries of Indian documents supplementing the earlier works of Deloria Jr., Prucha, DeMallie, and Fixico, but also because DeJong draws the reader into his lengthy discussion of traditional Indian agreement protocols and rituals for successful bilateral negotiations.” —Blue Clark, author of Lone Wolf v Hitchcock: Treaty Rights and Indian Law at the End of the Nineteenth Century

“This set of appendices alone will be worth the price of the book, as it is indeed the most detailed list I have seen. They reflect careful attention to detail and years of patient collection and collating of documents.”

nations were equal partners. To understand the nature and meaning of tribal treaties one needs to read them and recognize their sacred pledges and meaning, which are still relevant today. This volume examines intertribal treaties and treaty-making and provides understanding of both the agreements and the diplomatic protocols in which they were enmeshed. It summarizes colonial Indian treaty discourse, intertribal treaties and diplomacy, the different eras of ratified and unratified U.S. treaties, foreign and state treaties with Indian nations, and the Indian agreements that followed the cessation of official treaty-making. It provides extensive lists of over 1,500 Indian treaties from all tribal diplomatic eras and includes dates, participants, purposes, and references. DAVID H. DEJONG is director of the Pima-Maricopa Irrigation Project and has written extensively on the history of Gila River Indian Community water rights.

Native Wills from the Colonial Americas Dead Giveaways in a New World Edited by Mark Christensen and Jonathan Truitt

Indigenous life under colonial rule as revealed through never-before-published wills and testaments Native Wills from the Colonial Americas showcases new testamentary sources from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries. It provides readers with translations and analyses of wills written in Spanish, Nahuatl, Yucatec Maya, K’iche’ Maya, Mixtec, and Wampanoag. Divided into three thematic sections, the book provides insights and details that further our understanding of indigenous life in the Americas under colonial rule. Part One employs testaments to highlight the women of Native America and the ways their lives frequently challenged prescribed gender roles and statuses. Part Two uses testaments to illustrate the strategies of the elite in both negotiating and tributes to our understanding of the individual and collective nature of death by extracting from wills the importance of conversion, kinship, and societal ties in the colonial Americas. Capturing individual voices during dramatic periods of change, the documents presented here help us understand how cultures both adapt and persist. MARK CHRISTENSEN received his PhD from Penn State and is an assistant professor of history at Assumption College. He is the author of Nahua and Maya Catholicisms and Translated Christianities. JONATHAN TRUITT received his PhD from Tulane University and is currently an associate professor of colonial Latin American and world history at Central Michigan University.

“This collection offers a solid body of new scholarship on indigenous wills in the colonial Americas, as well as critical teaching tools for instructors in Latin American history and historical anthropology. For introductory courses, it provides access to transcribed primary source materials that offer key insights into indigenous social experiences during the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries. For advanced courses, the articles exemplify the diversity of interpretive approaches that scholars are currently employing to make sense of a crucial category of materials.” —Nathaniel P. VanValkenburgh, assistant professor of anthropology, University of Vermont

Rivers, Fish, and the People Tradition, Science, and Historical Ecology of Fisheries in the American West Edited by Pei-Lin Yu

Presents new scientific and cultural data about the roles of Native peoples on river ecosystems throughout the American West America’s western rivers are under assault from development, pollution, invasive species, and climate change. Returning these ecosystems to the time of European contact is often the stated goal for restoration efforts, yet neither the influence of indigenous societies on rivers at the time of contact nor the deeper evolutionary relationships are yet


understood by the scientific world. This volume presents a unique synthesis of scientific discoveries and traditional knowledge about the ecology of iconic river species in the American West. Building from a foundation in fisheries biology and life history

“An engaging and enlightening read, presented with professional rigor.” —Ronald M. Yoshiyama, University of California, Davis, Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Biology

“Outstanding. A solid, uniformly treated, set of case studies with a geographical, ecological, and cultural thread that ties them together, but with unique instances of technological, economic, and social adaptation to local conditions. A first rate example of the diversity and complexity of human/nature interaction in a single region. This is a really important contribution.” —María Nieves Zedeño, University of Arizona, Department of Anthropology

data about key species, the book reveals ancient human relationships with those species and describes time-tested Native resource management techniques, drawing from the archaeological record and original ethnographic sources. It evaluates current research trends, summarizes the conceptual foundations for the cultural and evolutionary significance of sustainable use of fish, and seeks pathways for future research. Geographic areas described include the Columbia Plateau, Idaho’s Snake River Plain, the Sacramento River Delta, and the mid-Fraser River of British Columbia. Previously unpublished information is included with the express permission and approval of tribal communities. This approach broadens and deepens the available body of data and establishes a basis for future collaboration between scientists and Native stakeholders toward mutual goals of river ecosystem health.

Synthesis and interpretation of ten years of archaeology and paleoecology along the Great Basin’s Old River Bed Delta About 12,000 years ago, a major river ran from the Sevier Basin to the Great Salt Lake, feeding a wetland delta system and creating riparian habitat along its length. But after three thousand years the river dried up and the surrounding lands became more like what we see today. Because the Old River Bed Delta experienced less environmental and found there have remained relatively intact—a rare find in the Great Basin. This book presents a comprehensive synthesis of a decade of investigations conducted by research teams working in different parts of the delta and explores questions about how the old riverbed was formed, how its distributary system changed through time, and how these changes affected early foragers. It concludes with an integrated summary and interpretation. Additional material from this study will be available online at DAVID B.

Migration and Ethnicity in Middle-Range Societies A View from the Southwest Tammy Stone

A case study of the complex social dynamics of migration and identity Author Tammy Stone focuses on a number of general deliberations on the archaeology of middle-range society and the prehistory of the American Southwest. This includes the complex dynamics of migration, identity, ethnic interaction, and the ability of archaeologists to identify these patterns in the archaeological record. The integration and ultimate expulsion of a group of Kayenta Anasazi at Point of Pines Pueblo in the Mogollon Highlands of east-central


Arizona provides a case study at the location where these themes played out. Stone uses a detailed architectural analysis of the pueblo

“A significant contribution to the literature on Southwest prehistory that will also be of use to archaeologists working in other parts of the world where migrations occurred.” —Barbara Roth, Department of Anthropology, University of Nevada, Las Vegas

to attain a nuanced and dynamic understanding of migration from the perspective of both the Kayenta migrants and their Mogollon hosts. By examining the choices that individuals, families, and small groups made about identity and alliance from the perspective of both the migrants and host community—the latter being an aspect often missing from analyses of migration—this volume provides never-before-published data on Point of Pines Pueblo and contributes considerably to the study of community dynamics at large. TAMMY STONE is a professor of anthropology at the University of Colorado, Denver. She has published numerous articles and three books, including The Prehistory of Colorado and Adjacent Areas (University of Utah Press, 1999).

Explorations in Behavioral Archaeology Edited by William H. Walker and James M. Skibo

Discusses the impact and contributions of behavioral archaeology to archaeology at large Behavioral archaeology, defined as the study of people-object interactions in all times and places, emerged in the 1970s, in large part because of the innovative work of Michael Schiffer and colleagues. This volume provides an overview of how behavioral archaeology has evolved and how it has affected the field of archaeology at large. The contributors to this volume are Schiffer’s former students, from his first doctoral student to his most recent. This generational span has allowed for chapters that reflect Schiffer’s research from behavioral archaeology from varied perspectives, including archaeological inference and chronology, site formation processes, prehistoric cultures and migration, modern material culture variability, the study of technology, object agency, and art and cultural resources. Broader questions addressed include models of inference and definitions of behavior, study of technology and the causal performances of artifacts, and the implications of artifact causality in

“Well written, accessible, and current. The papers included here attest to the fact that behavioral archaeology is still very much alive and well. A welcome contribution to the general field of archaeology.” —Michael J. O’Brien, professor of anthropology, University of Missouri; coauthor of I’ll Have What She’s Having: Mapping Social Behavior

Language and Ethnicity among the K’ichee’ Maya Sergio Romero

Explores the unbreakable link between language, history, and ethnicity in the Maya highlands This book explores the articulation between “accent” and ethnic identification in K’ichee’, a Mayan language spoken by more than one million people in the western highlands of Guatemala. Based on years of ethnographic work, it is the first anthropological examination of the social meaning of dialectal difference in any Mayan language. Romero deconstructs essentialist perspectives on ethnicity in Mesoamerica and argues that ethnic identification among the highland Maya is multiple and layered, the result of a diverse linguistic precipitate created by centuries of colonial resistance.


In K’ichee’, dialect stereotypes (accents) act as linguistic markers

recombine their linguistic repertoire—colloquial K’ichee’, traditional K’ichee’ discourse, colloquial Spanish, Standard Spanish, and language mixing—in strategic ways to mark status and authority and to revitalize their traditional culture. The book surveys literary genres such as lyric poetry, political graffiti, and radio broadcasts, which express new experiences of Mayan-ness and anticolonial and written K’ichee’ discourses from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries, including the famous chronicle known as the Popol Vuh, and explores the unbreakable link between language, history, and culture in the Maya highlands. SERGIO ROMERO is an assistant professor and director of the Indigenous Language Initiative at the Center for Latin American Studies, University of Texas at Austin. He has worked and lived with the Maya for more than twenty years, especially with the K’ichee’ of highland Guatemala, whose language he speaks fluently. ALSO OF INTEREST

“The Black Atlantic and Re-enchantment of Humanism”



Skeletal Biology and Bioarchaeology of the Northwestern Plains Edited by George W. Gill and Rick L. Weathermon

Reveals a picture of Northwestern Plains prehistory and early history through skeletal and burial records The prehistory and early history of the Northwestern Plains as told by human bones is vivid and dramatic. The skeletal and burial record spans thousands of years, a wide geographic expanse, and contains important evidence of human existence in this vast region of North America. This volume helps clarify the emerging picture. Most of the contributions assembled here were initially pre-


sented as part of a symposium at the 2003 Plains Conference.

“Very few people, other than George Gill, could have planned and coordinated this in-depth study of the human skeletal remains from both the prehistoric and early historic period of the Northwestern Plains . . . . This [is a] remarkable addition to the literature of what the early humans in this geographic area were like and what happened to them.” —William M. Bass, University of Tennessee

“Even the casual history buff will find the volume of interest for the stories it tells and the history it illuminates. The work is an exemplar of a scientific monograph. Hats off to George Gill and Rick Weathermon for a job well done!” —Great Plains Research

Twenty-one preeminent scholars, working across many fields within bioarchaeology and skeletal biology—including paleopathology, dental pathology, and human osteology—bring their expertise to bear not only on prehistoric Native American burials, but on numerous other case studies. They look at specific Wyoming samples of pioneer-era burials, Indian War–era casualties, historic Chinese burials, and remains from the Benick Ranch and the Korell-Bordeaux sites. Reports on Crow Indian mummies from Montana and military burials from Missouri and Nebraska continue the exploration into recent historic times. Human burials provide a rich source of information about people’s lives—who they were, what activities they pursued, and how they may have participated in rituals of death and mourning. GEORGE W. GILL is distinguished emeritus professor of anthropology at the University of Wyoming. RICK L. WEATHERMON is a senior research scientist in anthropology at the University of Wyoming.

Gasa Gasa Girl Goes to Camp A Nisei Youth behind a World War II Fence Lily Yuriko Nakai Havey Foreword by Cherstin Lyon

combines storytelling, watercolor, and personal photographs to recount her youth in two Japanese American internment camps during World War II. She uses short vignettes to describe how a ten­year­-old girl grew into a teenager inside these camps. Enhanced by vintage photographs and vivid, sometimes startling watercolors, Havey’s animated writing draws readers into a turbulent era when America disgracefully incarcerated thousands of its own citizens because of their race. In turns funny, wrenching, touching, and biting but consistently engrossing, these stories elucidate the daily challenges of life in the camp.

Latinos in Utah Armando Solórzano

Although Mexican Americans and other Latinos played a role in shaping the story of Utah, their history is neither well represented in the mainstream literature nor well recognized in the understanding of Utah’s past. This bilingual volume initiates the exploration of that history. Beginning as an oral history project that evolved into a photo­documentary exhibit, the collected photographs and stories in the book represent the manifold contributions of Latinos to the State of Utah. 240 pp., 7 x 10 173 b/w and color illustrations PAPER 978­-1­-60781­-358­-3 $19.95

Immigrants in the Far West Historical Identities and Experiences Edited by Jessie L. Embry and Brian Q. Cannon

This collection showcases the cutting­-edge research and innovative approaches that a new generation of scholars is bringing to the study of immigration in the American West. Often overlooked in general studies of immigration, the western United States has been and remains an important destination. The unique combination of ethnicities and races in the West, combined with political and economic peculiarities, has given the region an immigration narrative that departs significantly from those of the East and Midwest. This volume explores facets of this narrative with case studies that reveal how immigration in the American West has influenced the region’s development culturally, economically, socially, and politically. 520 pp., 61⁄₈ x 9¼ 41 illustrations, 2 maps PAPER 978­-1­-60781­-380­-4 $29.00 EBOOK 978­-1­-60781­-381­-1

Why do quaking aspens grow in prominent clumps rather than randomly scattered across the landscape? Why and how does a rufous hummingbird drop its metabolism to one­-hundredth of its normal rate? Why do bull elk grow those enormous antlers? Using his experience as a biologist and ecologist, George Constantz illuminates these and other remarkable slices of mountain life. His provocative accounts of birds, insects, rodents, predators, trees, and flowers are sure to stir the reader’s curiosity. The narratives, often brought home with a counterintuitive twist, invite readers to make new connections and broaden perspectives on life in the Rocky Mountains. 408 pp., 6 x 9 PAPER 978­-1­-60781­-362­-0 $24.95

After nine years of keeping his prostate cancer at bay, the drugs were no longer working. Doctors told him his time was nearly up. Jeff Metcalf turned this diagnosis into motivation, tasking himself to write one essay every week for a year. His collection of fifty­-two essays was chosen by the Utah Division of Arts and Museums as the winner of their 2012 Original Writing Competition and together they form a memoir of sorts. Requiem for the Living contains the best of these essays, selected and reworked by the author, who continues to defy his medical prognosis. Often funny, sometimes moving, profoundly personal, they draw from Metcalf’s rich experience. He does not describe a life defined by cancer but writes to discover what his life has been, who he has become, and what he has learned along the way. 248 pp., 5 ½ x 8 ½ PAPER 978­-1­-60781­-386­-6 $21.95 EBOOK 978­-1­-60781­-387­-3
