Jordan
The list author says: "There is a lot of crap out there when it comes to learning more about Brigham Young and the history of the Utah Territory. Hopefully this should help."
Blood of the Prophets: Brigham Young and the Massacre at Mountain Meadows
Blood of the Prophets: Brigham Young and the Massacre at Mountain Meadows
"Bagley is very speculative, however, this book does give an interesting and very informative insight into the Utah Expedition/War, and the Mountain Meadows Massacre. A must read for any serious scholar, even if you don't agree with the conclusions."
Brigham Young: American Moses
Brigham Young: American Moses
"Leonard Arrington's Magum Opus.  This book is the most essential reading for any study of Brigham Young.  The format is a little lacking but its reliance on primary source materials makes it the most indepth study of Brigham Young to date."
Diary of Brigham Young, 1857
Diary of Brigham Young, 1857
"This a great book. Diaries can be difficult to read sometimes, however, this diary covers one of the most formative years in Mormon and Utah Territory history."
Letters of Brigham Young to His Sons (The Mormon Heritage Series ; V. 1)
Letters of Brigham Young to His Sons (The Mormon Heritage Series ; V. 1)
"This book presents a very personal view of Brigham Young as he writes letters to his sons.  Many of these letters are to his sons as they are on their missions. You need to understand Brigham Young as a patriarch as well as the spiritual and temporal leader of the saints."
Forgotten Kingdom: The Mormon Theocracy in the American West, 1847-1896
Forgotten Kingdom: The Mormon Theocracy in the American West, 1847-1896
"Bigler presents a critical view of the development of the Utah Territory and its theocratic kingdom under Brigham Young.  Though there are few primary sources this gives an essential overview of the state of the Utah Territory during the tenure of Brigham Young."
