This book is a fascinating account of the Mormon experience in Missouri, written to counter many local histories of the time that twisted and misrepresented basic facts about the Mormon church and its expulsion from the state. Roberts was an convert to Mormonism and was born in England. He has been singled out as one of the great Mormon intellectuals.
This book has been republished (2001) by Maasai, Inc. and is available in an inexpensive soft-bound edition.
Review: The Missouri PersecutionsUser Review - Terry Earley - Goodreads
Roberts names names and provides and unflinching account of the atrocities perpetrated on the Mormon settlers. All other accounts gloss over the details, but Roberts had a reputation for speaking his mind and letting the history speak for itself. Too bad it is out of print. Read full review
