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.

Routine trips on these routes render the landscapes so familiar they become almost invisible environmental backdrops. They are, of course, far more important than background beauty. They provide us with places for shelter, work and play. They also provide natural resources that sustain life. If you were to make a few hours journey across San Juan County from east to west on US64, you would cross a series of exposed landscapes dating from present day to 245 million years in the past. the arrival of the first people to settle in San Juan Country took place 6,000 years ago. They were the first to give the landscape places identity names. What those names were we shall never know. Nor do we know what names the Chaco Culture people might have assigned them. These ancients left no written record. The earliest names that appear in this book are Navajo, followed by Spanish, and lastly English. This book of Landscape Place Names San Juan County contains 550 names with brief descriptions of their origin and history.

This authoritative field guide, illustrates and describes more than 190 species of wildflowers, shrubs, trees and weeds that occur commonly throughout the Islands as well as the nearby Gulf Islands and southern Vancouver Island, Canada. The plant descriptions are divided by habitats-meadows, open rocky outcrops, woodlands, maritime, fresh water, disturbed sites, Mt. Constitution -- under which they are listed by type, then color. The text also includes information on how the climate, topography and geology of the Islands affect plant life. Of special interest to serious students is the only annotated checklist in print of all vascular plants recorded for San Juan County. San Juan visitors as well as the Islanders themselves will find that this handy, compact guide adds a new and enjoyable dimension to their walks and wanders around these delightful island retreats.
