Overview

A Dozen Mind-Boggling Tales from the Beehive State In 1855, Caleb Rhoades accompanied Ute Indians to a sacred burial site in the Uinta Mountains—and there beheld a cave full of gold artifacts. Montezuma's treasure? Or relics made by the ancient Lamanites from the Book of Mormon? Will the location of the Lost Rhoades Mine remain a secret for the rest of time? The element of surprise—and fast horses—allowed Utah native Butch Cassidy and his accomplice to escape from the Castle Gate coal mine on April 21, 1897, with $7,000 in silver, gold, and cash. But, years later, was Bolivia really the last stand for him and the Sundance Kid, as Hollywood would have it? "Alien" Dave Rosenfeld and other members of the Mutual UFO Network have plenty of out-of-this-world stories to share. Among the questions that arise: Have reptilian aliens infiltrated human society? Was Fort Duchesne the site of a modern-day Roswell incident? From Jedediah Smith's final moments to persistent rumors of Bigfoot, Mysteries and Legends of Utah makes history fun, pulling the curtain back on some of the the state's most fascinating and compelling stories.
