From the Foreword- "Settled in the mid-nineteenth century as an agriculture-based Mormon colony, Lehi coped with the changes that are common to all small towns as they come into the twentieth century. Statehood, world wars, a revolution in transportation, the advent of radio and television, industrialization, and suburbanization all changed Lehi, turning it into a commuter town, dependent upon Utah's major metropolitan centers for jobs, shopping, and entertainment. Yet in spite of these changes, Lehi nevertheless retains its small town flavor and many of its western, agrarian values, as well as maintaining its Mormon roots. The story of this unique blend is well documented and entertainingly told in this book."
