From the jacket- "One can scarcely expect to understand the history of Mormonism without understanding the life of George Q. Cannon. He was never president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but aside from the founding prophet, Joseph Smith, and Brigham Young, no one surpassed Cannon as a leader, shaper, and defender of nineteenth-century Mormonism."
