Title Preface
Description PREFACE As Volume XVIII of the Saga of the Sanpitch is now published, we look back over these eighteen years and feel how fortunate we are that so much of the past of our rich heritage in Sanpete County has been preserved. We are grateful for the stories, essays, recollections, anecdotes, and poetry that bring nostalgic memories of a life that was. . . pictures of a colorful past. Each issue of the Saga is unique as it has been changing, growing with the times, moving through the years, delving into Sanpete history from 1849 to 1950. As we read we live again experiences we have known, legends we have heard, and thrill to new discoveries from the past, each punctuated with tears, laughter or amazement, This theme of dancing in Sannete and recall all the good times, the light-hearted, happy, fun times. We are pleased with the many who responded to the theme of dancing in Sanpete, These winning entries are published in the various categories in the usual way. A section containing some additional information and pictures on dancing in Sanpete concludes the volume. We regret that we are not able to publish every entry. We do appreciate the time and effort of those who entered the historical writing contest and encourage you to continue to write. We feel that each additional volume of the Saga brings new writers and new readers. Libraries and historical groups, as well as individuals, request the Saga each year.. We are delighted that the elementary and middle schools in North and South Sanpete are now using the Saga in their history classes. It is our sincere desire that the Saga will continue to gain friends and will accomplish its original purpose of "preserving the fast disappearing stories of Sanpete Valley. We hope to keep it a book of high quality at a minimum cost., iit
