John Jarvie of Brown's Park

Tennent, William L. John Jarvie of Brown's Park. Salt Lake City: Utah State Office, Bureau of Land Management, 1981.

What a fascinating biography provided to us all by the Bureau of Land Management's Utah office! The subject of the publication, John Jarvie, was born in Scotland in 1844. He was murdered at Bridgeport, Utah 6 July 1909. The narrative is full of cattle rustling, outlaws, and other things that bring the area to life. The researcher provides many photographs and maps that break up the well-documented text.

Fortunately, it is available to us through HathiTrust Digital Library. Hard copies are available in many libraries associated with the Federal Depository Library Program.
