Colonel Utah Blaine, held captive by the Army of the Revolution, broke out of jail and headed north from Mexico with nothing but the clothes on his back. Then he found new trouble struggling at the end of a noose - and stepped in just in time to save the life of a Texas rancher. The would-be executioners were the rancher’s own men, looking to steal his land. Now Utah has a unique proposition: Have the wealthy Texan play dead, introduce himself as the spread’s new foreman, and take care of the outlaws one by one. The wage to fight another man’s war? A hundred a month plus expenses. The cost of falling in love while he earns that wage? It wasn’t exactly part of the original agreement, but Utah will soon find out–unless the bad guys get to him first. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Craig Klein.

There may be more deer, antelope, bighorn sheep, lizards and rattlesnakes than human residents in this epic sandstone wonderland. Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks are but a few of the fascinating places that have been officially designated in this state, and many more miles of unnamed desert, forest, canyons and rivers fill the land. Red sandstone buttes, blue mesas, purple rock pinnacles, and narrow spires create what has been dubbed ´´Color Country.´´ Lofty mountains with lakes, forested slopes, and desert plateaus provide ample opportunity for the intrepid traveler. 1.

Utah is home to canyons and mountains, desert and abundant waterways, thriving cities. The setting for novels by Zane Gray and Edward Abbey, film characters Thelma and Louise and Butch Cassidy, Utah has harsh country for individualists and tamer areas for the meeker at heart. The Beehive State (so called because of the industriousness of its residents) is the geological crossroads of the elevated tableland known as the Colorado Plateau, the western slope of the Rocky Mountains and the Great Basin, the huge expanse of land cradled between the Sierra Nevada and Wasatch mountain ranges. The state boasts six national monuments, five national parks, countless wilderness areas and thousands of additional acres of public lands accessible for hiking, biking, skiing, rafting, fishing, and much more. Needless to say, these natural spaces provide one of the greatest year-round concentrations of adventurous pastimes. The preponderance of rugged, virtually primeval terrain lends itself naturally to high adventure. Furthermore, the territory has long been pre-eminent in the pantheon of spiritual places to the native peoples who were first to settle here, and whose ancient mysteries and modern presence are keenly felt today. If you want to experience the special nature of this exceptional area, and to get out and do things, this audiobook is for you. It provides all the nuts-and-bolts information you need to plan and accomplish an informed trip, as well as specific details on a variety of adventures. Ride a horse for a day, raft through rapids the next. Climb mountains for a week and know all the best fishing spots in advance. This guide covers it all, focusing on Northern Utah (see our Southern Utah guide for the other half!). Plus the best places to stay and eat are detailed, as well as the touring information you need, plus the adventure - on foot, on wheels, on snow, on horseback, in the air... everything you need to make your trip unforgettable. 1.

Utah is said to have one million residents who have a diagnosed mental illness. Are those numbers accurate, or is mental health trying to make a profit at the expense of the people? This book goes over my situation and what I´ve learned about Utah´s ´´behavioral´´ health system. After discussing my case, I go over what they consider a mental illness, and then I discuss the treatment of those who get the diagnosis. It is a dark and scary infiltration in our society that controls even our own government. Having taken philosophy of science, I was taught that the one field of study which is not a science is psychology. And yet despite this, our legislature makes laws giving funding to mental health and our courts trust the evaluations of those in the field. So how is it that a non-science managed to control the government? There is a two-fold problem. One, there are those of us who do not have a mental illness, but have been falsely labeled with the disability. And two, those who rightly have the disability are not treated as equal citizens under the law and under society. After listening to my book, see if you, yourself, realize that there is a serious problem with the system. Or maybe you´ll be caught in their spell, believing that I truly am mentally ill. But with one million mentally disabled persons, you are bound to know one, or know someone who does know someone with a mental illness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Trevor Clinger.

Uthas bjerge og andre historier´´ udspiller sig i politiske og kulturelle brændpunkter rundt om i verden fra øst til vest: fra efterkrigstidens Danmark til Østeuropa efter murens fald, hvor kommunismen afløses af røverkapitalisme; fra Cambodjas Killing Fields og Malaysias multikulturelle samfund til bjergene i krigens Afghanistan - og i det billedskønne Utah, hvor katastrofen lurer i bjergenes skygge. Tolv dramatiske historier om mennesker, der i den globale landsby kastes ud i moralske dilemmaer og politiske konflikter, hvor deres valg og handlinger kan vise sig at få vidtrækkende og indimellem fatale konsekvenser. Fortiden er aldrig helt forbi. 1. Danish. Leif Davidsen. http://samples.audible.de/bk/lind/002104/bk_lind_002104_sample.mp3.
