Nauvoo: Kingdom on the Mississippi
University of Illinois Press, 1965 - Mormon Church - 364 pages
A history of what became a romantic
legend about a martyred prophet, a lost city, and religious persecution,
this volume tells the story of Nauvoo, the early Mormon Church, and the
temporal life of Joseph Smith. Nauvoo (1839-46) was a critical period in
Mormon history. The climax of Smith's career and the start of Brigham Young's,
it was here that Utah really had it's beginnings and that the pattern of
Mormon society in the West was laid.
"...the quality and quantity of research is commendable... an excellent
contribution to American mid-western history and to Mormoniana in general."
