Description: Beehive-coifed women, men in fedoras -- remember Utah in the poodle-skirt 1950s, back when everyone looked like Donna Reed or Ozzie Nelson, and when camp meant taking the Ford to the mountains? Rick Everett celebrates post-war wholesomeness in ninety authentic photographs, with captions that accentuate the photos' funny qualities.

For instance, he reproduces an ad from the LDS church's Improvement Era magazine depicting SLCPD chief Cleon Skousen pouring a fellow officer a cup of Postum. A thought bubble above the chief's head reads, "He never has a second cup at home."

Another example -- a group of women in pioneer garb barely conceal permed hairdos beneath lacy bonnets. One bareheaded woman "thinks": "Everyone in this damned Relief Society is having a bad hair day but me!"

Everett admits to "racy" content in a scene juxtaposing the land-speed race car "Blue Flame" with a dance instructor who back then posed in the desert doing splits. The caption: "Famous flames of the Salt Flats."

Nostalgic and light-hearted, this book commemorates a time past, long before gangs and corporate takeovers, when people "had it all": Saltair, Betty Crocker, Dee Burger clowns, Wait Disney at the drive-in, miniature golf... Come to think of it, who could have asked for more?
