One of James’ four contributions to the See America First series, preceded by California, Romantic and Beautiful (1914), Arizona, the Wonderful (1917), and New Mexico, The Land of the Delight Makers (1920). Discusses both the history and natural beauty of the Beehive State in a characteristically romantic fashion, and includes an excellent account of the Mormon migration and influence in Utah. Octavo.

Light browning to the extremities of the dust jacket, with some shallow chipping to the spine head. The box is soiled and splitting along the seams, with some general edgewear and light staining.
