A History of Uintah County: Scratching the Surface
This book covers the settlement of the county including Ute Indians, trappers, traders, and white settlers --both Mormon and non-Mormon-- and examines the growth and development of the area. Uintah County has become well known for its minerals --especially Gilsonite-- and its petroleum resources have brought the economic booms and busts to the area. Tourists now come to take advantage of its recreational opportunities and scenic beauty.
