Emmett Utt was born in 1903, and grew up on a small farm near Princeton, Idaho. His father came to this area from Kansas to try his hand at gold mining. Emmett did and saw many exciting things when he was young, and he tells about them here. This booklet comes from oral history interviews between Mr. Utt and Sam Schrager at Utt's home near Princeton in May, August, and October of 1973. The booklet was prepared and illustrated by Karen Purtee, and edited by Mr. Schrager.
