The Utes are a Native American people who live today in Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah, and they currently have the second-largest Indian reservation in the United States: the 1.2 million acre Uintah and Ouray Reservation located in northeastern Utah. The Southern Ute Reservation in southwestern Colorado takes in another 681,000 acres, while the Ute Mountain Ute Reservation, mostly in southwestern Colorado and northeastern New Mexico, has 553,000 acres.
However, these holdings are relatively small fragments of the original Ute land base; before the arrival of whites and the taking of the Utes' land, they stretched from the Great Basin of Utah through the Colorado Plateau and Rocky Mountains of Colorado, and northern New Mexico into the Great Plains. The Utes were a fierce warrior people who fought hard to defend their land against Spaniards and later the Americans, but they remain much less well-known among the American public than the Navajos, (holders of the biggest reservation today) and many other Native American nations.

Poor book, and a poor narrator.
This book mainly focuses on conflicts regarding the Ute Tribe and white settlers and the US government and hardly talks about the tribe and its culture at all. Further, the narrator mispronounces things constantly and it was recorded poorly. I can't recommend it less.
