U of U Press announces the 2012 Wallace Stegner Prize Winner
The University of Utah Press is pleased to announce that it is awarding the 2012 Wallace Stegner Prize to Jedediah S. Rogers for "Make Straight in the Desert a Highway: Conflict in the Canyon Country." A national panel of independent judges chose the winning entry as the best book manuscript in environmental or western history. The prize, which is funded by generous donors, includes $10,000 and publication of the book by the University of Utah Press. This year’s winner, Jedediah Rogers, examines the history of clashing ideologies and the repeated conflicts they have produced over roads in wild areas of Utah’s canyon country. The judges noted that “Rogers breaks new ground; he creates a path for us to see things we’ve overlooked or not considered.”
The Prize will be presented to Jedediah Rogers during the annual Utah history address and awards presentation of the Utah State History Conference. This presentation will be held Thursday, September 20, 2012, at the Fort Douglas Post Theater from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
