    Brigham Young was a rough-hewn New York craftsman whose impoverished life was electrified by the Mormon faith. Turner provides a fully realized portrait of this spiritual prophet, viewed by followers as a protector and by opponents as a heretic. His pioneering faith made a deep imprint on tens of thousands of lives in the American Mountain West. This publication is the first printing of a complete diary of the Mormon leader. It provides good insight into Brigham Young's interests and activities, but very little little information about his personal life. Edited and introduction by Everett L. Cooley.
