Book signing at Helper museum Dec. 7
Author, historian and columnist Eileen Hallet Stone is scheduled to come to Helper's Western Mining and Railroad Museum on Dec. 7. She will be available to sign copies of her new book, Hidden History of Utah, between 1 and 3 p.m.
In the 1840s, land west of the Missouri River was a new frontier for courage, adventure, freedom and true grit. During this era and the decades that followed, Utah became the focal point for many brave settlers yearning for a new way of life.
While Utah's proud Mormon legacy is well documented, there are lesser-known stories that contribute to the state's fascinating history. Her latest book is a revelatory collection of tales culled from her popular Salt Lake Tribune "Living History" column.
From newly freed slaves, early suffragists, desert farmers and union men to railroad kings, cattle barons, influential statesmen and more, this is Hidden History of Utah.
