Piute County is located in central Utah. It is a land of high mountains and mountain valleys. Early settlers raised livestock and others farmed growing forage crops and potatoes. Discoveries of gold and silver especially around Marysvale led to a rapid increase in population, but through the years the gradual decline of mining meant a general return to agriculture and a general reduction of population. A well-presented history. As new, unread copy in dust jacket.
