Stegner's history on his childhood home. 'Mormon Country' is a term that applies to the area that Brigham Young and his followers colonized in the mid to late 19th century. The area includes: Utah, southern Idaho, western Wyoming, western Colorado, eastern Nevada and northern Arizona. This area was originally named Deseret by the Mormons. In this underappreciated classic, Stegner keenly observes the influence religion and land have had on one another in the Intermountain West.
