From the publisher: ...unravels the fascinating series of events that led to a religious and ideological war of both blood and words. The Mormon War is not only a lesson in America's struggle with prejudice, it challenged the protection afforded by the First Amendment, foreshadowed the partisan violence over slavery and states' rights that would erupt across Missouri and Kansas - and ultimately the Civil War - and led to the unexpected settlement of a vast area of the West as a Mormon homeland.
