“A magnificent new biography which will immediately become not only the standard biography of Jacob Hamblin, but also one of the greatest biographies in the fields of Mormon and Utah history. Exhaustively researched and documented, and judiciously interpreted.”—Gary Topping, editor of If I Get Out Alive: World War II Letters and Diaries of William H. McDougall Jr.
