Image For A HISTORY OF WASHINGTON COUNTY by Douglas Alder&Karl Brooks

A HISTORY OF WASHINGTON COUNTY by Douglas Alder&Karl Brooks

Item Description
Inside Cover: Washington County is Utah's region of lowest altitude (2,500 feet). The aridity, warm winters, and semitropical crops have made it appeal to residents from the Anasazi Indians to those of the present. This book traces the history of the county from ancient times to the coming of Mormon settlers in the 1850s. It includes the founding of St. George in 1861, chronicling the determination of the early settlers as they fought the heat and drought. The subsequent century-long isolation of the area is examined as well as the more recent boom times in which Utah's Dixie has been radically transformed as a destination recreation spot and residence for ever-increasing numbers of retirees and others. The challenges this unparalleled development has brought about are also examined - particularly the challenge of managing the growth while preserving the beauty of the surprisingly fragile land.

DIXIE SAINTS by Douglas D. Alder (Book)

Item Description
Dixie Saints: Laborers in the Field, is the story of the common folk - the farmers and ranchers, the fruit peddlers, the road builders, the timber cutters and lumber makers, the freighters, the midwives, the teachers, the choir singers and band players - those whose names are on genealogy charts but are seldom in the history books. It is about agriculture before machines and hard muscle labor in gardens, farms, and ranches.

Image For My Father's Highway (DVD)

My Father's Highway (DVD)

Item Description
This is the story of one of the most daring and controversial highway construction challenges in United States History. Interstate 15 travels through a 29.5 mile section of rugged, high mountain Mojave Desert in the extreme northwest portion of Arizona; braving an untamed natural wonder called the Virgin River Gorge. After 14 years of work, this section was completed in 1973 at the cost of more than $61 million or $100 an inch. To this day, it represents one of the most expensive and spectacular engineering feats in the history of the United State Interstate Highway System. The finished road takes a traveler on a 500 million year geological journey, on a four lane super highway that has become the economic lifeline of the Desert Southwest. This film tells the epic story of how this impossible road was built on this improbable route and the people who overcame every obstacle, even death, to make sure it happened.

Image For Return to Little Hollywood (DVD)

Return to Little Hollywood (DVD)

Item Description
Kanab, Utah sits along the highway that links Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, and the Grand Canyon. The majestic landscape surrounding the city helped to make this section of Southern Utah a favorite destination for motion picture companies for much of the twentieth century, earning it the nickname "Little Hollywood." Narrated by legendary Utah newsman Dick Nourse, Return to Little Hollywood chronicles Kanab's transformation from a quiet cattle town into one of the entertainment industry's busiest production areas. This fast-moving documentary features footage of the locations where classic movies like Buffalo Bill, Sergeants 3 and The Outlaw Josey Wales were made, and interviews with several actors who worked in the area, including Clint Walker, Johnny Western and Harry Carey, Jr. Also featured are conversations with colorful locals who recall the days when Hollywood's brightest stars roamed Kanab's streets, and a survey of recent film projects produced in this stunning corner of the American southwest.

UTAH, THE RIGHT PLACE by Thomas G. Alexander (Book)

Item Description
Back cover: "The common denominator of these Utahns is neither birthplace, gender, politics, economic position, religion, ethnic background, liberalism, conservatism, nor profession," Alexander writes. "It is, rather, that each chose Utah as their home and that they have made the state a better place for all of us. Like these people, we become Utahns because we love its land and people, and because we have come to understand that it is still 'the right place.'"
