Beyond the myth of the settlement of the West lies a remarkable story of everyday people working and fighting to maintain their way of life and a place to live it. Fighting in Canyon Country by Professor Robert S. McPherson explores the turmoil that blanketed the lands of southeastern Utah and southwestern Colorado from the prehistoric Anasazi to the historic Navajos and Utes and later, to the miners, cowboys, settlers, and United States military.

In the midst of survival and friction in the high country canyons and desert of the Colorado Plateau, those working and fighting to sustain themselves vied for control, stirring the cauldron of conflict in a physical confrontation that lasted until the 1920s.
