From the dust jacket- "These personal writings - journal entries, letters, and other documents - reveal the true character of the Prophet Joseph Smith: his humility, his unswerving loyalty to his family and friends, his love of life, his commitment to the Church, and his deep spirituality... The reader will come away from this book with a deeper understanding than ever before of what Joseph Smith was really like."
