This volume presents the journal of Leonard E. Harrington. Harrington was the mayor of American Fork, Utah for 29 years. The second portion of the volume concerns the State of Deseret, addressing many misconceptions of the origins of government in Utah, and exploring lesser-known sequels to that first government in the forty-five year struggle for statehood.
