Comments

From the book: "Charles Ora Card (1839-1906) was a prominent citizen and religious leader in Cache Valley, Utah Territory, before abruptly migrating to Alberta, Canada, in 1886. There, within the space of sixteen years, Card's dedication and vision left a lasting imprint on the Canadian West by virtue of the settlements, industries, and irrigation agriculture he helped to establish. . . . Fleeing Utah to escape prosecution for polygamy, Card's commitment to the practice also made him a controversial figure in Canada."
