"A brilliant piece of research and writing by one of America's top historians. It is written with style and felicity, and it deals with all the difficult topics that must be probed in describing and interpreting the controversial early history of Mormonism. It is simply an outstanding work." -- Leonard J. Arrington, co-author of The Mormon Experience: A History of the Latter-day Saints

"Bushman has made a profound contribution to the understanding of Mormonism at its most critical juncture... A major work in Mormon historiography." -- Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought

"Vividly reconstructs the family and social background of the Mormon prophet." -- New York Review of Books

Winner of the 1985 David Woolley Evans and Beatrice Evans Biography Award and a History Book Club selection
