Several books have been written on Brigham Young, so why another? The author answers this question in his preface: the use of primary sources not previously available - letters and diaries of Brigham Young and contemporaries - and the exciting insights these have provided into Brigham Young's life and character. Rich with interesting detail in story and anecdote, the narrative depicts many of Brigham Young's prodigious tests and challenges and draws from his response to them the qualities that marked his greatness, including his warm, human characteristics as well as his vast leadership abilities. Most of all there emerges, for the modern reader as for Brigham Young's contemporaries, a man who inspires the best in others.
