In Glen Canyon and the San Juan Country, Gary Topping gives a complete history of the region and the people who came there. The author examines the nature of the country - its geology, geography, climate, and flora - and describes early exploration of the region by the Spaniards and the Mormons, as well as by the Powell, Hayden, and Wheeler Surveys. In addition to describing recreational use of the area, Topping includes background information on Glen Canyon Dam and the archaeology and history accomplished as a result of the Glen Canyon Survey. The story of Glen Canyon will interest historians as well as aficionados of Utah's river and red-rock canyon country. Although Glen Canyon is gone, it is remembered in this detailed, comprehensive study.

San Juan County was established in 1880 following the famous winter trek and steep descent through the Hole-in-the-Rock Trail to Bluff, Utah. Behind the settlement of this community by the San Juan River is a story of tenacity, determination, and hardship. The Hole-in-the-Rock was a sandstone crevice discovered fortuitously by pioneers when a wild ram escaped its pursuers and descended to the river by that route. After blasting, building up the grade, and lowering by ropes, the wagon train finally emerged through the crevice to the river below and finished the last difficult miles into Bluff. Miner and photographer Charles Goodman documented the early days of San Juan County, from the production of bricks and molasses to the establishment of Bluff Oil Company, and many of his unique images, dating from 1892 to 1913, are included in this volume.
