A History of Utah's American Indians A History of Utah's American Indians
Edited by Forrest S. Cuch  
The valleys, mountains, and deserts of Utah have been home to native peoples for thousands of years. Like peoples around the word, Utahs native inhabitants organized themselves in family units, groups, bands, clans, and tribes. Today, six Indian tribes in Utah are recognized as official entities. They include the Northwestern Shoshone, the Goshutes, the Paiutes, the Utes, the White Mesa or Southern Utes, and the Navahos (Din). Each tribe has its own government. Tribe members are citizens of Utah and the United States; however, lines of distinction both within the tribes and with the greater society at large have not always been clear. Buy this book now

Edited by Colleen Whitley  
A follow-up to the highly successful Worth Their Salt, published in 1996, Worth Their Salt Too brings together a new set of biographies of women whose roles in Utahs history have not been fully recognized, despite their significance to the social and cultural matrix, past and present, of the state. These womencommunity and government leaders, activists, artists, writers, scholars, politicians, and othersmade important contributions to the states history and culture. Some of them had experiences that reveal new aspects of the states history, while others simply led lives so interesting that their stories beg to be told. This new collection demonstrates, as Worth Their Salt did, the diversity of Utahs society and the many different roles women have played in it. Buy this book now
