This wonderfully informative book has enriched the lives of many patrons since its publication in 1977. The book recounts the vast history of our region with insightful candor. Another aspect of the book that makes it an outstanding book is the variety of illustrations, maps, and photographs from the long time span of the valley’s history. Due to the popularity and usefulness of the book, the library has gone through several copies since its original publication. Unfortunately the book is no longer in print. This means that we need your help to replace our well used copies. We would like to ask any generous citizen that owns a copy to donate it to the Weber County Library in Huntsville. Every donation will have a name plate on the inside cover. These donations will ensure that future generations of Valley residents will continue to be able to learn and enjoy the rich history of their hometowns and learn about their forefathers’ sacrifices and struggles that made the Ogden Valley what it is today. If you have a copy of the book and would like to donate it, please call and ask to speak to Karen or Sarah at 745- 2220. of this settlement.On Sunday the chiefs attended our meetings.

Yesterday morning early they formed in procession and marched slowly, dancing at intervals, to the public square where the citizens retired to the east side of the square, and the Indians sung and played on the square and, in an immense ring, danced round and round, circling to the left, and concluded by a sham fight, representing a recent encounter of seven braves with a very superior number of Ar[r]apahoes, in which the Shoshones killed one and scalped him, and made their escape. The same scalp was seen in all their processions and dancing, stuck on a long stick, the squaws now and then striking it with little sticks. After these performances they came to the bowery and received four beeves (plural for beef), nine sheep, several sacks of flour; and from 50 to 75 bushels of potatoes, carrots, beets, turnips, etc. This last scene in the bowery was truly interesting; such a picture, faithfully delineated, would have immortalized the name of the artist. “They have gone away feeling well, and we feel well, for though their company is very agreeable, our philanthropy is so large that we are willing their presence should benefit other settlements as well as ours. Much of our grain is ripe and harvested; prospects are very good for the rest.” (Des. News, 15:309.)
