Brigham's Destroying Angel: Being the Life, Confession and Startling Disclosures of the Notorious Bill Hickman, Danite Chief of Utah 1904
1904. This is the autobiographical account of Bill Hickman, Chief of the Destroying Angels, Head Danite, etc. After Mr. Beadle began to examine the history of the Mormon church; and while all the Mormon people spoke of Bill Hickman as a desperately bad man, and guilty of untold murders, he was struck by two curious and then unexplainable facts. The first was that while everybody, from Brigham Young down, united in calling Hickman a murderer, and while evidence could easily be collected of several of his crimes, not a single attempt has been made by priest or people to bring him to justice. The second point is that long after Hickman was known as a murderer, he was successively promoted to a number of offices; he was Sheriff and Representative of one county, Assessor and Collector of Taxes, and Marshal; and during all this time he was on terms of personal intimacy with Brigham Young.

LibraryThing ReviewUser Review - LibraryThing
Printed directly from the original manuscript (such as it was), and the reproduction of the woodcuts is sometimes a bit rough, cutting off a piece of a word of the caption where the caption extends beyond the boundaries of the picture. On the other hand, those woodcuts alone are worth reading the book. I can recommend "Wild Bill Hickman and the Mormon Frontier" by Hope A. Hilton as a more rational (and easier to read) discussion of the life of this strange, strange man.
