This is a hiking and mountaineering guide to parts of Utah's West Desert. The West Desert is the Great Basin section, and the western third of Utah. Climbing areas are topped by Notch Peak, which has one of the highest vertical faces in the world. Also included are other high summits in the House Range, as well as Crystal Peak, made of 33-million-year-old pure-white volcanic tuff. Also, Granite Peak is made of solid white granite, but with several half-million-year old volcanos just to the north. The hiking & climbing section has 17 mapped areas.

In addition to hiking & climbing, perhaps the most emphasis, at least page wise, is the life & times of a sheepman named Jack Watson. This author is related to Jack, by marriage, and after several years of begging, had the opportunity to copy Watson's 12 diaries which date from 1886. This was when Utah's sheep industry was in its infancy. In the end, Jack had a little store & hotel with post office, litterally in the middle of no where until 12/5/1935, when he crushed his hand in the gears of a BLM built well & pump, which was later amputated. His diary, plus interviews with other old timers who knew him, makes this the best account of Utah's sheep industry.

Also, this book has the life story of a locally-famous hermit named Bob Stinson who lived in a cave house; plus the history of the Antelope Spring & Painter Spring CCC camps built and operated during the 1930's--as told by the men who were there. Also included is the story of the dreadful winter of 1948-49, as told in one sheepman's diary. Western Millard County is also one of the premier fossil hunting areas in the world, and some of these sites and fossil hunting are discussed.

Great history of the area of Utah where I live. Great pictures and interesting stories. Kept my interest. Would recommend.

Great book about a small mining community in Millard County, Utah. The photos are great and the text is very well researched.

I would have given this book 5 stars but I do have a complaint with all of the Kelsey books. They would be so much better if he used actual USGS maps and had GPS coordinates for his maps instead of the hand-drawn figures. I like precision and the hand drawn maps only give you a ballpark idea of where things are actually located. The next is very small which I think was done intentionally to save on printing costs (fewer pages). Last of all, it would be nice if he had an index in the back so you can easily find where a specific topic.

Otherwise, this is a great book about an obscure area of Utah. I have heard though that there is a place called Ibex just north in Juab County. Is this true or there just confusion?

I got a journal and a whole lot of background as a bonus to the maps and simple descriptions. Nicely done!
