BooknewsA different history of Utah's settlement told from the point of view of its culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse citizens<-->in their own voices. The compilation of oral histories describes the experiences of Utah's Utes, African-Americans, Jews, Chinese, Italians, Japanese, Greeks, and the Chicano-Hispano community. The interviews share gripping accounts of losing lands to white settlers, transcontinental voyages, and the challenges of sustaining family and identity on reservations, farms, and in cities. Truly representative of the American experience, the collection widens perceptions of a state predominantly associated with mythic Western expansionism and Mormonism. Lacks an index. Includes photographs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
