Overview

In his introduction to Salt Lake City: Welcoming the World , Nourse captures the heritage and excitement of this modern-day promised land. He writes of the arrival of Brigham Young, who led a band of Mormons from Missouri to the Western desert in search of their Zion. Here, between the Wasatch Mountains and the Great Salt Lake, they built a city-their magnificent Temple at its heart.

From its beginnings as a spiritual center to its present-day position as one of Fortune magazine's "best cities in America for business," Salt Lake's many facets are all illuminated here. Aided by hundreds of outstanding images chosen by Francois Camoin from the collections of the Area's leading photographers, Welcoming the World proclaims the many reasons this city is such a special place.

As Nourse concludes, "Like the early settlers who followed Brigham Young in search of paradise, today's newcomers and visitors-the throngs who travel here each year, and the immense crowds who will come to partake of the Winter Olympics-will find Salt Lake City to be everything they dream it to be."
