#5 Utah Myths and Legends: The True Stories behind History’s Mysteries (Legends of the West) by Michael O’reilly

Description of the book:

Utah may be best known for its mesmerizingly beautiful high deserts, the largest salt water lake in the Western Hemisphere, and as the home base for one of the world’s most popular religious groups, but few may know about the Lost Rhoades mine purportedly full of gold treasure, the unseen residents of Heritage Park, or an unusually large, three-toed primate that steals livestock. Each episode included in this book explores unusual phenomena, strange events, and mysteries in Utah’s history. From Butch Cassidy's clever Castle Gate robbery to reported sightings of UFOs and aliens, Utah Myths and Legends makes history fun and pulls back the curtain on some of the state's most fascinating and compelling stories.
