Free book for Utah's teachers

Utah's ancient history is focus of donation[L]ast week, the nonprofit Colorado Plateau Archaeological Alliance unveiled a book it's donating to every Utah fourth- through seventh-grade teacher. The group hopes teachers will pass a trove of ancient history to their students—with a lesson in stewardship.

"The kids are the ones who are going to protect this stuff for the future," said Jerry D. Spangler, CPAA executive director and co-author of "Treasures of the Tavaputs," which focuses on the archaeology of Desolation Canyon, Nine Mile Canyon and Range Creek near Price. "Our generation hasn't done a very good job of it."
