It almost certainly wouldn't be to everyone, but to those who are borderline-obsessed with the history of southern Utah, this book is a must read.
Each chapter contains the reminiscings of a particular cowboy or cowgirl who grew up near Cataract Canyon, Canyonlands National Park, and upper Glen Canyon.
One features a woman who was once a little girl on her father's ranch, and who slips casually into a comment on her ghostly spirit protector that accompanies her everywhere. Another talks candidly about the environmental problems of southern Utah being very real...even if he did spend his whole lif ehating environmentalists. Some talk about Butch Cassidy, and others talk about grazing and overgrazing.
The book is worth your money just for the account of Ned Chaffin--King of the Cowboy Storytellers--and all the other accounts are very entertaining as well, and offer good insights into the place names of southern Utah, and the Anglo history of the area.
