Sprawling historical work by the former editor of the Utah Historical Quarterly that is illustrated throughout with black and white views, maps, and portraits. "This work does not aspire to be an interpretive appraisal of the great religious and political episodes in the history of Utah; nor does it attempt to weigh and consider these problems in their bearing on the fortunes of the State. That has already been done, many times; both well done and overdone. But rather is this volume a collection and arrangement of essential material forming the chief sources of Utah's history." - from the Introduction.
