From front inside flap: "Was Ploygamy the downfall fothe Strangite kingdom or was it something far more ominous and wide-reaching? Vickie Cleverley Speek examines the charismatic figure of James J. Strang and provides a detailed first look at his wives, children, and the families left behind at his martyrdom. She makes an especially close examination of the practice of "consecration of gentile property" in the Strangite colonies on Beaver Island in Lake Michigan. Were the Strangites guilty of piracy and other crimes, and if so, to what extent?"
