They Sang, Danced, Played and Prayed

The History And Philosophy Of The Cultural Arts Of The Mormon Pioneers
by Shirlee Hurst Shields

The foundations of the rich cultural traditions of Utah can be traced to the very earliest days of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Today, Utah and it’s surrounding states have much to offer in the areas of music, dance and theatre, and it is mostly due to the efforts of the early Mormon Pioneers, both in Salt Lake City and in the areas surrounding Salt Lake and Utah.
This is a short, fun and informative booklet for anyone interested in the cultural heritage of Utah, The Mormons, and the West.
