A History of Washington County
From Isolation to Destination


by Douglas D. Alder and Karl F. Brooks

This book traces the history of the county from
ancient times of the Anasazi Indians to the coming of Mormon settlers in the 1850s. It includes the founding of St, George in 1861, chronicling the determination of the early settlers as they fought the heat and drought.
The subsequent century-long isolation of the area is examined as well as the more recent boon times in which Utah's Dixie has been radically transformed as a destination recreation spot and residence forever-increasing numbers of retirees and others.

With Picks, Shovels & Hope: The CCC and it's Legacy on the Colorado Plateau (9780878425464)


by Wayne K. Hinton with Elizabeth A. Green

At the height of the Great Depression, two of
America's richest resources-its young men and
its public lands-were in peril. In 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt launched a new program to help save both. Within months, the Civilian Conservation Corps had put three quarters of a million young men to work restoring forests and farmland, building infrastructure, and fighting fires in America's national public lands. Many workers were sent far from home, including thousands who came west to the Colorado Plateau. In this high, dry, and lonesome setting, they encountered natural beauty unlike anything they had ever seen, as well as challenges they could not have imagined. With Picks, Shovels & Hope tells their story.
