Light blue cloth spine and boards with truquoise letterbox and silver lettering on spine and front board. "In the wake of the gold rush, an obscure religious weekly waged a remarkable newspaper war with the leading journals of California. George Q Cannon, one of the most eloquent and perhaps his era's brightest defender of the Mormons . . . manned the battlements of the Western Standard, the herald of the young religion on the Pacific Coast. This book chronicles the attacks and counterattacks, and the victories and defeats, of this extraordinary conflict. New book with no flaws. No dust jacket, as published.
