Salt Lake City: Signature Books. First printing. Hardcover/dust jacket. 724 pp. Signed.
As historians continue to sort through the beginnings of Mormonism, Dan Vogel’s comprehensive inventory of all relevant primary documents is an unparalleled achievement. In this first of a multi-volume series, Joseph Smith’s family–Emma, Katharine, Lucy, Joseph Sr., William, and others–recount how they became convinced of his high calling, feeling “the spirit of God like a burning fire shut up in [their] bones.” These narratives are carefully presented in their original forms with full documentation and annotation.
