Nat Geo Mag Guardian of a Ghost World:


Unforgiving Land

The Fremont culture arose before A.D. 400 in the hardscrabble region that is now most of Utah and parts of nearby states. Despite the dry, unforgiving climate, they managed to cultivate corn, beans, and squash along waterways like Range Creek and the river from which they get their name.
