A Page Out of the Book Cliffs: Page 61 – Nate Knight – Part 16

If you have a good memory and have been keeping up with this series of stories about my uncle, Nate Knight, you will remember that he was a man who grew up in the Book Cliffs of southeastern Utah back in the 1920s and ’30s. I believe that spending enough time amongst the lonesome ridges and canyons of the Book Cliffs Mountains can give a person a special understanding of nature’s ability to hide her beauty right under your nose.

Page 58 – Nate Knight – Part 3

I’ve been planning to try to cram the rest of my recollections about my uncle, Nate Knight, into this third part, but I know it won’t work. As mentioned in my last column, I have been getting a lot of help with the facts and the timeframes from Uncle Lee Stocks, who still resides in Moab and who spent a lot of time working with Nate in the years from 1945 until 1960. These brothers-in-law were always close and lived across the street from each other on 2nd North in Moab most of their lives.

First, let me apologize about the fact my column has only appeared infrequently the past few weeks. Sometimes it was because the editor did not have space to run it, and lately it’s because I’ve been tied up on a big project out here in Thompson Springs that has consumed all my time. I like to have my stuff printed every other week in The Times-Independent, but it just can’t always work out that way.
