This is an excellent primary source of L.D.S. history and Utah history during the1880-90's. It is also a window into the soul of Mormonism by one of its important 19th century characters. It is notable for what it leaves out (1890 manifesto) as well as for what it includes. (L.D.S.-Gentile conflict)

Format: Hardcover
To anyone who wonders what it would have been like to be one of the women who was sealed to Joseph Smith, this is a very interesting book. The book is actually a journal which is written in the end of her life. The stuggles of a widdow in pioneer times were really tough, but she worked through them. The entries get a little long because she is older and is sick quite a bit of the time. For those who know downtown Salt Lake, it is fun to trace in your mind her travels and wonder at the strong historical cornerstones of the LDS faith that she meets. This is a good book for both LDS and non-LDS readers as it really shows how live was lived in those time.
