The book traces the pre-history and history of the White Mountains and surrounding area from the formation of the geology to the eve of World War II, recounting the lives of the Apaches, Mountain Men, Hispanics, Soldiers, Mormons, Cowboys, Blacks, Outlaws and others who struggled in one of the last untamed regions of the West.
