"Brigham Young was the supreme American paradox, not because he contained elements foreign to American soil but because he united them--the business genius of a Rockefeller with the spiritual sensitivities of an Emerson, the lusty enjoyments of the pleasures of good living with the tenderness of a Florence Nightingale. He was not merely an entrepreneur with a shared vision of America as the Promised Land; he was a prophet with visions of his own and he built beyond himself."
"Gives readers as good a picture as they are likely to get of the man who assumed leadership of the major part of the Mormon Church when Joseph Smith was assassinated in 1844, led its members west, and built a church empire in Utah." -- New York Times Book Review
