Inscribed by J. Bracken Lee on the dedication page. From the jacket- "Candid, controversial, and colorful, J. Bracken Lee was a dominant figure in Utah politics for four decades. First as mayor of Price, then as state governor, and finally as mayor of Salt Lake City, he not only injected tone and substance into the region's political personality but also attained national recognition for a time as quotable critic of the federal income tax and deficit spending."
