Signed, "Best Wishes, Ron Barney" on the title page. From the dust jacket- "This story is about a man and his family for whom 'frontier' and its alluring garb of freedom and independence, despite ever present hardship, characterized the course of their lives better than any other word with the exception of one. That other word is 'Mormon'... In 1840 Lewis Barney subscribed to an unpopular religious organization whose theological outline overlay his latent religious inclinations to a remarkable degree."
