A clash of interests : Interior Department and Mountain West, 1863-96 by Thomas G Alexander( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nineteenth-century America was boasted as "the land of the free". And it was- if a person happened to be an Anglo-American Protestant farmer. But what of the Indian, the Mormon, the cattleman, and the logger? They were dissatisfied. Why? What made the difference in the Mountain West? Federal misperception and mismanagement. Perceiving the Mountain West to be an undeveloped Midwest, the government ignored territorial interests and needs. Here is an exploration of the arguments used for and against federal policies and an examination of the actual needs of the Mountain West. -- from Book Jacket

Despite all mining has done and meant in Utah, there has not been, until now, a book that surveyed its history in Utah.

Part II reviews the history of a handful of particularly significant mineral industries: salines, coal, uranium, and beryllium. The last part takes a region-by-region approach to survey the important, primarily for hard-rock mining, areas of the state

On September 11, 1857, a wagon train of emigrants passing through the Utah Territory on their way to California were massacred at Mountain Meadows.

In this 12th volume of the Arrington Lecture Series, Thomas Alexander (Lemuel Redd Professor of Western Ameri
