Acclaimed series on the Mormon Church and the American West. All volumes and keepsakes signed by the authors or editors. The Kingdom in the West Series, subtitled "The Mormons and the American Frontier," is an award-winning series begun in 1997 that explored the story of the Latter-day Saints and their part in the greater history of the Western Frontier. The history of the Mormons in the American West is so sweeping it is easy to ignore episodes that, for one reason or another, found no place in the traditional annals of the region. This series explored the story of the Mormon people and their part in the greater history of the Western Frontier. Primary source documents, many of them previously unpublished, comprise this series' core.
