History of Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia (Links Added)

Since then, people of varied ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds have made Utah their home-drawn by the state's beauty and economic opportunities. Residents of Utah enjoy an invigorating four-season climate, a high tech business environment, high-quality education, excellent health care, and outstanding cultural and recreational opportunities. These economic, social and cultural advantages make Utah a very desirable place to live.

Utah historical writing has included memoirs; autobiographies; life sketches; biographies; edited diaries and journals; town, country, and valley histories; theses and dissertations; monographs long and short; and general histories. These have been produced by the historic persons themselves, their kinsmen, journalists, amateurs and enthusiasts, freelance and paid writers, defenders and attackers, students and teachers, and professional historians. Researchers have discovered a great variety of sources for direct or corroborative evidence, such as diaries and journals, church records, institutional records, town and county records, the state archives, the National Archives, periodicals, and newspapers, to name a few.

Utah history in broad terms properly treats of all human endeavors of all groups of people acting within the state's boundaries through time, ideally based on authenticated original documents from reliable eyewitnesses, and told with understanding and respect for differing points of view.
