In this impressive study of the "elder statesman," as reporters labeled Clark, D. Michael Quinn considers what it meant for a Latter-day Saint to attain such national and international stature, although Quinn never loses sight of Reuben's very human qualities either. This fresh, intimate approach presents Clark on his own terms and draws readers into Clark's world in the context of the larger society of his time and place. This copy is inscribed by D. Michael Quinn on the title page. The author writes, "To____. Good seeing you in Nauvoo! Mike Q." In addition, a bookplate signed by D. Michael Quinn, has been laid in.
