Don your hiking duds, your sense of adventure, and your desire to discover. Then follow author and Utah native Ted Brewer into the diversity of Utah. From the lofty peaks of the Uinta Mountains in the northeastern corner of the state to the scorched desert earth of the Joshua Tree Forest in the Southwestern corner, the variation of terrain, climate, and color is what you would expect to find stretched across a continent, not huddled together in a single state.
Discover all of Utah with Ted Brewer as he divulges the ins and outs of his native state, where you can
- indulge yourself at Mercato Mediterraneo di Nonna Maria, a restaurant where a different country is represented on the menu each month
- travel along the Silver island Mountains National Back County Byway and discover why many people consider this a unique, if not bizzare, natural attraction
- explore the Joshua Tree Forest and, if you're lucky, see one of the elusive desert tortoises that live for as long as thirty-five years
- hike to Powell Point, which sits at the edge of the highest plateau in North America and offers views all the way to Arizona
