Brand new softcover book!

; In From Fort to Village: Provo 1850-1854, Prominent local historian D. Robert Carter provides yet another look back into the early history of Provo.

It begins just after the Battle of Provo River, while the settlement is in its second year of existence. Leaders of the settlement are in the midst of defining effective Indian policies and deciding how best to deal with those who preceded them as inhabitants of the area.

Armed with exhaustive research and a wry wit, Carter leads us through the next five years of Provo's existence. During this period, the original old fort known as "Fort Utah" undergoes expansion and ultimately relocation.

You will witness the evolution of the governmental authority in the new settlement, the formal nesses, new neighbors, hard winters, and scarcity of food and clothing became real obstacles and challenges for what became a rapidly growing community.

Those familiar with Provo will discover family names that correspond to contemporary buildings in the city. Geographic locations of events are carefully pinpointed and names and /or locations of places are compared with today's street and streams.

It will be hard to read this work and not be inspired by the lives of those who literally built our city.

The portrayal of the struggles and joys of these early settlers will surely provide enhanced perspective and greater appreciation for these remarkable people for generations to come.

7 Troubled Times - Provo, Utah 1855 - 1856

Carter, D. RobertNew, Provo City Corporation, 2016, Provo, Utah

Paperback



Brand new softcover book!

; This well-research and nicely written history of early Provo is the third volume of the authorís detailed history of Provo. The first was Founding Fort Utah, followed by From Fort to Village. Troubled Times chronicles the difficulties the early settlers encountered during the mid-1850s, including troubles with the Indians, grasshoppers destroying crops, and the ill-effects of the drought. Hunger and starvation threatened the lives of many pioneers along the Wasatch Front after crops failed. Herds of cattle died. One upbeat episode in all of this is the discovery of a miraculous, short-lived source of sugar that led to the creation of confections for several weeks in the summer of 1855. (What was this mysterious substance?).

It seems that Provo residents were not well thought of by their Mormon leaders in Salt Lake City. They were constantly admonished to build their city more: construct the first tabernacle (took them 17 years), build a wall around the city (to protect from Indians), improve the roads, build fences to keep the cattle under control, and construct outhouses (it was a problem). Carter explains how the Mormon reformation came to Provo and tells of the role that Provo played in the rescue of the Willie & Martin handcart companies, stranded and starving out in the Wyoming wilderness.

This history is meticulously researched and well documented in numerous footnotes to each chapter. Illustrated with 90 photos and drawings and featuring a useful index, this volume will stand with Carterís others as a fine resource for Provo history for many years to come.
