"Avery writes with grace and power. Drawing on rich primary archival sources, she presents a convincing argument and gives us valuable insights not only into the compelling personality of David Smith but also into the time in which he lived... A first-rate biography." -- William A. Wilson, Western Historical Quarterly "A full-bodied biography that thoughtfully illuminates a remarkable life from which much can be learned." -- Richard L. Jensen, Journal of Mormon History "Avery's immensely insightful, scholarly biography of David Hyrum Smith greatly enhances our understanding of this tormented son of the founding prophet of the Latter-day Saints." -- Danny L. Jorgensen, Utah Historical Quarterly "A very thoroughly researched, well-written, and fascinating biography; a superb book that is more than a biography of one subject, but a moving and poignant social history as well." -- Evans Biography Award Panel.
