Wonders of Sand and Stone

A History of Utah's National Parks and Monuments Frederick H. Swanson

The most comprehensive history of Utah’s national parks and monuments

June 2020, 440 pp., 6 x 9 35 Illustrations, 4 maps eBook 978-1-60781-767-3 Hardcover 978-1-60781-765-9 $59.95 Paper 978-1-60781-766-6 $34.95

From Delicate Arch to the Zion Narrows, Utah’s five national parks and eight national monuments are home to some of America’s most amazing scenic treasures, created over long expanses of geologic time. In Wonders of Sand and Stone, Frederick H. Swanson traces the recent human story behind the creation of these places as part of a protected mini-empire of public lands. Drawing on extensive historical research, Swanson presents little-known accounts of people who saw in these sculptured landscapes something worth protecting. Readers are introduced to the region’s early explorers, scientists, artists, and travelers as well as the local residents and tourism promoters who worked with the National Park Service to build the system of parks and monuments we know today, when Utah’s national parks and monuments face multiple challenges from increased human use and from development outside their borders. As scientists continue to uncover the astonishing diversity of life in these desert and mountain landscapes, and archaeologists and Native Americans document their rich cultural resources, the management of these federal lands remains critically important. Swanson provides us with a detailed and timely background to advance and inform discussions about what form that management should take.

John Hance

The Life, Lies, and Legend of Grand Canyon’s Greatest Storyteller Shane Murphy

Explores the life and legacy of John Hance, Grand Canyon’s most famous raconteur

A legend in his own lifetime, John Hance (1837–1919) was synonymous with Grand Canyon and the tourist trade he helped establish there. Between the late 1880s and early 1900s, to say “John Hance” was to say “Grand Canyon.” Hance was well known to travelers and visiting dignitaries alike, men such as William “Buffalo Bill” Cody and Theodore Roosevelt, the president who affectionately referred to him as “the greatest liar on earth.” It was said that Hance tried to jump the canyon on his horse Darby only to turn back when he was halfway over and realized he would never make it across. The truth behind Hance’s life is remarkable even without embellishment. In this book, Shane Murphy chronicles Hance’s childhood in Tennessee and Missouri, his service in the Confederacy during the Civil War, his time in Union prisons as a POW, and his later adventures with the Hickok brothers crossing the plains. Settling in Arizona’s fruitful Verde Valley, Hance farmed and filled military contracts before taking up residence as Grand Canyon’s first permanent EuroAmerican settler, trail builder, guide, and storyteller. Hance left no correspondence, personal memoirs, or other writings. Only informal portraits from magazines and newspaper accounts remain. Murphy investigated assessors’ rolls, rare mercantile ledgers, and mining claims to create a full and compelling narrative of a man who was once an icon of the American West and should be remembered as the founding father of Grand Canyon tourism. Shane Murphy led Grand Canyon river trips for twenty years, worked on polar expedition ships for a decade, and has been researching, writing about, and presentating on early Grand Canyon tourism since 2012.

A Filmmaker’s Journey down the Green and Colorado Rivers Charles Eggert Foreword by Roy Webb

Recounts the last of the few river trips to follow Powell’s path down the Green and Colorado Rivers before they were dammed

In 1955 photographer Charles Eggert and renowned river guide Don Hatch set off down the Green River with six others to duplicate the 1870s journey of John Wesley Powell. With dams soon to be built at Flaming Gorge and Glen Canyon, they planned to film the voyage and be the last to travel these waters before the landscape changed forever. Eggert’s film A Canyon Voyage debuted successfully after the trip, but his written narrative of the river, its landscape, its people, and the adventures of the crew was never published. This book finally brings Eggert’s writings out of the archives and into the public eye. With his keen photographer’s vision and colloquial voice, Eggert describes canyons and towns now deep under water as he tells the story of friendships forged upon the rapids and currents of the rivers. Roy Webb’s foreword provides historical context; river historian Alfred E. Holland Jr. introduces Eggert, the man who transformed into an environmentalist after visiting the West; and Sarah Holcombe’s afterword looks at what transpired in the lives of all eight crew members after the journey. Color and black-and-white illustrations further enliven the text. An engaging read, this is an important piece of river history that also shines light on Eggert’s tremendous influence as a conservation cinematographer.

Charles Eggert (1918–2005) was an independent filmmaker and photographer. His films were instrumental in the establishment of Canyonlands National Park and in deterring the building of Echo Park Dam, which would have flooded Dinosaur National Monument.

Joseph Smith

History, Methods, and Memory Ronald O. Barney

A modern analysis of writings by and about Joseph Smith

June 2020, 392 pp., 7 x 10 eBook 978-1-60781-756-7 Hardcover 978-1-60781-770-3 $75.00s Paper 978-1-60781-755-0 $40.00s

ALSO OF INTEREST

The study of Joseph Smith and his writings have long been shaped by the polemical atmosphere that surrounds Smith’s claims to divine authorship. Even after a half-century of serious scholarship devoted to Smith, fundamental questions remain about how to best interpret features of his life and writing. Smith’s own History of Joseph Smith (edited and revised at the beginning of the twentieth century by B. H. Roberts) created an enduring image that influenced Mormon theology, doctrine, and polity for generations. With new historical documents now available, however, a reappraisal of Smith and the origins of Mormonism warrant attention. Ronald O. Barney—a former editor of the Joseph Smith Papers—applies new interpretations to Smith in history and memory, re-examining both his writings and contemporary accounts. The book explores the best methodologies for appraising the historical record, including a review of Smith’s world and its contextual background, an analysis of his foundational experiences, and a characterization of Smith as a man and prophet. Though the premise of re-evaluation may be unsettling to traditionalists, a modern reconsideration of the historical record’s entire range of sources is necessary to fashion a strategy for evaluating Smith and his enduring but complex legacy.

Ronald O. Barney served for thirty-four years as an archivist and historian in the History Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is a former associate editor of the Joseph Smith Papers and creator and executive director of the Joseph Smith Papers documentary television series. His books include One Side by Himself: The Life and Times of Lewis Barney and The Mormon Vanguard Brigade of 1847: Norton Jacob’s Record.

Ezra Taft Benson and the Making of the Mormon Right Matthew L. Harris

Traces the controversial career of Ezra Taft Benson and his far-reaching impact on Latterday Saints and politics in Utah

July 2020, 288 pp., 6 x 9 8 illustrations eBook 978-1-60781-758-1 Hardcover 978-1-60781-771-0 $59.95 Paper 978-1-60781-757-4 $34.95

Ezra Taft Benson is perhaps the most controversial apostle-president in the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For nearly fifty years he delivered impassioned sermons in Utah and elsewhere, mixing religion with ultraconservative right-wing political views and conspiracy theories. His teachings inspired Mormon extremists to stockpile weapons, predict the end of the world, and commit acts of violence against their government. The First Presidency rebuked him, his fellow apostles wanted him disciplined, and grassroots Mormons called for his removal from the Quorum of the Twelve. Yet Benson was beloved by millions of Latter-day Saints, who praised him for his stances against communism, socialism, and the welfare state, and admired his service as secretary of agriculture under President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Using previously restricted documents from archives across the United States, Matthew L. Harris breaks new ground as the first to evaluate why Benson embraced a radical form of conservatism, and how under his leadership Mormons became the most reliable supporters of the Republican Party of any religious group in America.

Although federal Indian policies are largely determined by Congress and the executive branch, it is the commissioner and assistant secretary of Indian Affairs who must implement them. Over the past two centuries, the overarching goals of federal Indian policy have been the social and political integration and assimilation of Native Americans and the extinguishment of aboriginal title to Indian lands. These goals have been woven into policies of emigration, assimilation, acculturation, termination, reservations, and consumerism, shifting under the influence of a changing national moral compass. Indian Affairs commissioners have and continue to hold an enormous power to dictate how these policies affect the fate of Indians and their lands, a power that David H. DeJong shows has been used and misused in different ways through the years. By examining the work of the Indian affairs commissioners and their assistant secretaries, DeJong gives new insight into how federal Indian policy has evolved and been shaped by the social, political, and cultural winds of the day.

Race, Class, Immigration, and the Construction of Urban Reputations Pepper Glass

Explores the development and impact of urban reputations in Ogden, Utah

How do we draw the lines between "good" and "bad" neighborhoods? How do we know “ghettos”? This book questions the widely held assumption that divisions between urban areas are reflections of varying amounts of crime, deprivation, and other social, cultural, and economic problems. Using Ogden, Utah, as a case study, Pepper Glass argues that urban reputations are “moral frontiers” that uphold and create divides between who is a good and respectable—or a bad and vilified—member of a community. Ogden, a working-class city with a history of racial and immigrant diversity, has long held a reputation among Utahns as a “sin city” in the middle of an entrenched religious culture. Glass blends ethnographic research with historical accounts, census reports, and other secondary sources to provide insight into Ogden’s reputation, past and present. Capturing residents’ perceptions of an entire city, as opposed to only some of its neighborhoods, and exploring the regional contexts shaping these views, is rare among urban researchers. Glass’s unique approach suggests we can better confront urban problems by rethinking assumptions about place and promoting interventions that break down boundaries.

Pepper Glass is associate professor of sociology at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. He has published his research on racial inequality, social movements, and youth culture in Ethnic and Racial Studies, Mobilization, and the Journal of Contemporary Ethnography.

During the California Gold Rush, many of the miners and merchants who hoped to strike it rich in California left behind letters and journals that provide valuable insights into one of the great migrations in American history. Of all the journals and diaries left behind, William B. Lorton's is perhaps the most informative and complete. Although known to historians for decades, Lorton’s journal has never been published. In this volume, LeRoy and Jean Johnson bring Lorton’s writings to life with meticulous research and commentary that broadens the context of his narrative. Lorton’s work is revealing and entertaining. It captures glimpses of a growing Salt Lake City, the hardships of Death Valley, and the extraordinary and mundane aspects of daily life on the road to gold. With resilience and a droll sense of humor, Lorton shares accounts of life-threatening stampedes, dangerous hailstorms, mysteriously moving rocks, and slithering sidewinders. The inclusion of images, maps, and the editors’ detailed notes make this a volume that will entertain and inform.

LeRoy and Jean Johnson have studied and traveled the overland trails of the American West for more than forty years. Jean is a historian of the pioneer history of Death Valley and author of Grit and Gold: The Death Valley Jayhawkers of 1849. Together they coauthored Escape from Death Valley and co-edited William Lewis Manly’s Death Valley in ’49.

Catherine Fowler chronicles a significant yet little-known program for Girl Scouts in post–WWII America. At a time when women were just beginning to enter fields traditionally dominated by men, these two-week camping caravans and archaeological excavations introduced teenage girls not only to the rich cultural and scientific heritage of the American Southwest but to new career possibilities. Dr. Bertha Dutton, curator at the Museum of New Mexico, served as trip leader. While on the road and in camp, Dutton and other experts in anthropology, archaeology, geology, natural history, and more helped the campers appreciate what they were seeing and learning. This book details the history of the program, sharing trip itineraries and selected memories from the nearly three-hundred girls who attended the camps. It also serves as a minibiography and tribute to Bertha Dutton, who, through her knowledge, teaching, and strong persona, provided a role model for these young women, many of whom later pursued careers in anthropology and related fields. Catherine S. Fowler is Foundation Professor of Anthropology Emerita at the University of Nevada, Reno, and research associate at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Her recent publications include Isabel T. Kelly’s Southern Paiute Ethnographic Field Notes, 1932–1934, co-authored with Darla Garey-Sage.

Household Economy at Wall Ridge A Fourteenth-century Central Plains Farmstead in the Missouri Valley

Household Economy at Wall Ridge tells the story of a Native American household that occupied a lodge on the eastern Plains border during the early 1300s AD. Contributors use cutting-edge methods and the site’s unparalleled archaeological record to shed light on the daily technological, subsistence, and dietary aspects of the occupants’ lives. This work represents the first comprehensive study of a prehistoric Central Plains household in over half a century. The research covers archaeobotany, zooarchaeology, dating, ceramics, lithics, bone and shell tools, diet, climate, ecology, and more. The study of plant and animal usage from the lodge stands as a tour de force of analytical methods, including stable isotope data that permit the discovery of dietary items missed by traditional studies. Many of these items have never been reported before from Central Plains sites. The book firmly sets the site’s occupancy at AD 1305, with a margin of error of only a few years. This result, based on high-precision dating methods, exceeds in accuracy all previously dated Plains lodges and provides a temporal backdrop for evaluating household activities. Stephen C. Lensink is associate director of the Office of the State Archaeologist and adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology, University of Iowa. Shirley J.

Point of Pines Pueblo has long been the center of theoretical debates in southwestern archaeology, yet detailed descriptions of the site have been lacking. Located on the San Carlos Apache Reservation in central Arizona, this large Mountain Mogollon village (about 800 rooms) dates from AD 1200 to 1400. For the first 100 years of occupation it was a multiethnic community and is often referenced in discussions of aggregation, community organization, migration, and ethnic interaction. In Point of Pines Pueblo Tammy Stone details the architectural structures and cultural materials at the site, providing a body of information never before published. From 1947 to 1960, Point of Pines Pueblo was excavated by the University of Arizona field school under the direction of Emil Haury. Data from that work were housed at the Arizona State Museum Archives. Stone draws from those original excavation notes to present detailed descriptions of each architectural structure and extramural feature along with information on the associated artifacts, dated dendrochronology samples, and ethnobotanical samples unearthed at the site.

Nivaclé Grammar Lyle Campbell, Luis Díaz, Fernando Ángel

An exhaustive treatment of Nivaclé, an indigenous language of the Chaco region

This book offers an extensive description of Nivaclé, an indigenous language spoken in the Gran Chaco region of Argentina and Paraguay. Nivaclé’s phonology, morphology, and syntax are complex; the language has no tenses marked on verbs, essentially no prepositions, and a sizable number of lexical suffixes whose content is so concrete they would be expected to be independent words in most other languages. Nivaclé has a unique speech sound, /k͡ l/, known nowhere else. In some locations where it is spoken, multilingual conversations are the norm. These and other rare traits make Nivaclé an especially fascinating language for linguists, with many implications for language typology and linguistic theory. The book is based on dozens of audio and video recordings of narratives and on hundreds of hours of elicitation and analysis with native speakers. Four lengthy texts are included here to demonstrate the language in action. Scholars—whether in anthropology, folklore, geography, history, or language—will find value in the narratives included here and in the insights into Nivaclé life and culture found throughout the book. Lyle Campbell is emeritus professor of linguistics at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. He has published more than 200 articles and 22 books, including American Indian Languages and Historical Syntax in Cross-linguistics Perspective, which both received the Linguistic Society of America’s Leonard Bloomfield Book Award.

“This book contains the most detailed and informative descriptive study of the Nivaclé language so far and the only one to be found in English. It stands out by its richness of data, its high standards of analysis and presentation, and its exhaustive character. Logically constructed and well organized, it contains all the language data and analysis one could hope for without indulging in unnecessary digressions. The book is well written and reader friendly.” —Willem Adelaar, professor emeritus of Native American Languages, Leiden University

“The most detailed description of any language of the Gran Chaco. A reference grammar such as this one will be useful to anthropologists, ethnographers, ethnohistorians, typological linguists, and indigenous people who want to write teaching materials or teach classes on their languages. It is a groundbreaking contribution.” —Willem J. de Reuse, linguist for The Language Conservancy

Islamic Preaching in the Modern World Edited by Itzchak Weismann and Jamal Malik

The first comprehensive examination of modern Islamic proselytism

June 2020, 325 pp., 6 x 9 19 Illustrations, 4 maps eBook 978-1-60781-746-8 Paper 978-1-60781-745-1 $45.00s

ALSO OF INTEREST

This book provides the first in-depth, wide-scope treatment of da’wa. A term difficult to translate, da’wa covers a semantic field ranging from the call or invitation to Islam, to religious preaching and proselytizing, to the mission and message of Islam. Historically da’wa has been directed outward to nonbelievers, but in modern times it has turned increasingly inward to “straying” Muslims. While the media and many scholars have focused on extremism and militant groups that have raised the banner of jihad, this volume argues that da’wa, not jihad, forms the backbone of modern Islamic politics and religiosity, and that the study of da’wa is essential for understanding contemporary Islamic politics as well as jihadist activity. Contributors represent a variety of approaches and come from a range of academic, religious, and national backgrounds. In these essays, they analyze the major discourses of da’wa, their embodiment in the major Islamic movements of the twentieth century, and their transformation into new forms of activism through the media, the state, and jihadi groups— including al-Qaeda and ISIS—in the twenty-first century. Itzchak Weismann is associate professor of Islamic studies and former director of the Jewish-Arab Center at the University of Haifa. He has published extensively on modern Islamic thought, Islamic movements, Sufism, and interfaith dialogue. Jamal Malik is chair of Islamic Studies at the University of Erfurt. He has published widely on Islamic education, religious pluralism, Sufism, and the mobilization of religion.

“A massively complex and well-orchestrated volume. It fulfills the promise of its title, presenting but also critiquing Islamic preaching in the modern world. It has no demons or heroes, but many major figures and influential organizations—including states—that no other authors have combined within one volume.” The Search for God’s Law Islamic Jurisprudence in the Writings of Sayf alDin al-Amidi Bernard G.

“Weismann and Malik have brought a scattered field of work on da'wa into focus. This collection tips the balance of scholarly and public attention from jihad to da'wa. The Culture of Da'wa makes a clear contribution to understanding contemporary Muslim societies both from without and within. Well written, informative, and well placed.” —Richard C.

gone bird in the glass hours a poem play

Zachary Asher Foreword by Alberto Ríos

Winner of the 2019 Agha Shahid Ali Prize in Poetry Zachary Asher’s second collection, gone bird in the glass hours, is a play in verse, featuring seven voices. It begins with a rabbi, bewildered and bent by personal grief, guided and beguiled by elusive Blue Postman into the world of “the glass hours” and its inhabitants. Rooted in magical realism, gone bird in the glass hours experiments with multiple forms from epistles to centos, from fractals to prayers. These poems are brave in their excavations of grief and solace, wonder and rage, collective trauma and, ultimately, transcendence. May 2020, 66 pp., 5.5 x 8.5 eBook 978-1-60781-769-7 Paper 978-1-60781-768-0 $14.95

“In Zachary Asher’s gone bird in the glass hours it is the grievers who heal the grieving. Here, life is insistent, whether it is a frog in the pulse or a river that refuses to dry up or the days when weeping both rejoices and sorrows. In Asher’s poems, poets and god divide and erase the languages of dark hymns, yet even through the sadness there’s still a joy that can take us back to the time when everyone we loved was still alive. In these poems there’s a way to be winged, a way to hope through the darkness.” —Tracy Brimhall, author of Come the Slumberless to the Land of Nod and Our Lady of the Ruins

“Like some wandering twenty-first-century Chagall working his magic with words instead of paint, Zachary Asher upends and refreshes the visible world with the balance and grace of an acrobat. Floating and grounded, reverent and irreverent, gone bird in the glass hours is an elegy shot through with ode. Whether limning moments of epiphany or tragedy, ancient Judaic practice or daily ritual in our time of tech, the wonders in this poem play are informed by faith, sharpened by erotic love, and drenched in the color blue, in almost mystical celebration. A not-so-subterranean ode that dwells, above all, in the blue of radiant mystery.” —Sarah Maclay, author of Music for the Black Room and The White Bride

"Zachary Asher writes of 'the accidental / beauty of being alive' in this moving and hybrid Jewish work—a mystic probing, a searchingly literary investigation into the mystery of our transience." —Edward Hirsch, author of Gabriel and The Living Fire: New and Selected Poems

Problems and Solutions

Miners for Democracy in Utah and the West

Edited by Hal Crimmel

Christian Wright

Although Utah is a land of outdoor wonders, the state has a distressing air pollution problem. In some areas like Salt Lake City, geography exacerbates the issue; air quality in the Wasatch Front metropolitan region often ranks among the worst in the nation. Utah’s Air Quality Issues: Problems and Solutions is the first book to tackle the subject. Written by scholars in a variety of fields, including chemical engineering, economics, atmospheric science, health care, law, parks and recreation and public policy, the book provides a one-stop resource on the causes, impacts, and possible solutions to the state’s air quality dilemma. This volume is a must read for anyone wanting to understand Utah’s air pollution problem and what can be done about it.

In this book, Christian Wright explores the complex history of the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) and coal mining in the West over a fifty-year period of the twentieth century, concentrating on the coal miners of Utah's Carbon and Emery counties. Wright emphasizes their experience during the 1970s, which saw the rise and passing of American workers’ most successful postwar effort to internally reform a major labor organization—the Miners for Democracy movement. Drawing on a variety of primary sources, Wright provides evidence for organized labor’s continuing significance and value while effectively illuminating its mounting frustrations during a relatively recent chapter in the history of Utah and the United States.

Clogs and Shawls Mormons, Moorlands, and the Search for Zion Ann Chamberlin In this revealing family memoir, best-selling author Ann Chamberlin explores the history of her Mormon grandmother Frances Lyda and her seven sisters who grew up desperately poor in Bradford, Yorkshire, in the early years of the twentieth century. Chamberlin’s narrative follows these eight daughters of Mary Jane Jones and Ralph Robinson Whitaker, a remarkably gifted yet poor and blind piano tuner. All gifted and strong individuals in their own right, many of the Whitaker sisters overcame long odds and incredible hardships to carry on and prosper in Salt Lake City. Chamberlin interviewed her grandmother and six of her surviving great-aunts for Clogs and Shawls, the relatives who had made their way to Mormon Zion. She weaves novelistic passages with their first-person narratives to create a singular work of oral immigrant family history that is both lively and revealing. 375 pp., 6x9 eBook 978-1-60781-737-6 Paper 978-1-60781-736-9 $24.95

The Prehistory of Morro Bay Central California’s Overlooked Estuary

Morro Bay is one of more than thirty major estuaries where prehistoric people thrived along the California coast, yet for much of the twentieth century these systems were deemed insignificant within the broader outline of New World prehistory. Recent research, however, has shown that estuaries were magnets for human occupation as early as 10,000 years ago. This book combines archaeological data from large-scale excavations completed between 2003 and 2014 with other studies from Morro Bay to reveal a heretofore overlooked yet remarkable history of cultural change and adaptation. Over the last 8,000 years, as the bay evolved toward its current configuration, inhabitants endured earthquake and drought, regularly adjusting their settlement practices but continuing to fish and collect shellfish. Their populations slowly grew against a backdrop of extreme resource diversity and diachronic habitat variation, ultimately leaving behind evidence of a unique human-estuary ecological saga. 4336 pp., 8.5x11 eBook 978-1-60781-707-9 Paper 978-1-60781-706-2 $45.00s

This book explores the complex meaning and significance of caricature art drawn to support the ascendant Egyptian Wafd political party and its push for independence from British colonial control. The works of previously neglected Egyptian lithographers are also explored, especially those who adopted sophisticated European techniques while experimenting with a variety of new styles during a remarkable period in Egyptian history. Caricature art by Wafd party artists was almost sui generis. It is distinguished especially by its sincere use of iconic, folkloric imagery, intended to rally nationalistic sentiments among an emerging Egyptian electorate that included many nonliterate citizens. Cannon’s search reveals an influential yet largely forgotten artistic movement in Egypt, one that deserves recognition for its contribution to Egypt’s share of modern Middle East cultural history.
