This volume is described by the author as "a reasonably accurate copy of the journal kept for Brigham Young by his scribes during the exodus from Nauvoo, and as such might reasonably be considered Volume VIII of the history of the Church edited by B. H. Roberts (documentary)." The binding style looks similar to the History of the Church, and the author claims this was intentional. He envisioned this volume sitting side by side with the 'History' set.
