Hidden History of Utah

by Troy Williams

When we think of early Utah we often remember the tales of heroic Mormon pioneers and the arrival of the transcontinental railroad.  But historian Eileen Hallet Stone sees another aspect of Utah’s past. They are the tales of Utah prostitutes, Chinese and Greek immigrants, freed slaves, suffragettes and Gentile merchants.  These are the voices and lives of Utah’s forgotten histories.  Stone restores these Utahns to our collective consciousness  in her Living History column in the Salt Lake Tribune.  These stories are collected in her new book, Hidden History of Utah.
