Comments

Mormon apostate Stenhouse's massive and comprehensive history of life in Utah under Brigham Young. Includes a recounting of the hand-cart emigration, the Mormon war, the Mountain Meadow Massacre and the colonization of the Rocky Mountains. One of the more sensational exposes of Mormonism in the nineteenth century. "Stenhouse saw the Mormon faith as delusion, not hoax or fraud; he was critical of Smith and Young but did not doubt their sincerity." - Robert Flanders. Flake/Draper 8404. Scallawagiana 63.
