Summary
Journalist Alex Beam, a Boston Globe columnist and contributor to The Atlantic, examines the life of Latter Day Saints' founder Prophet Joseph Smith as well as the events that led to his group's move to Utah in the mid-1840s. While still in Illinois, Smith's ambitions grew, and he prepared to run for the U.S. presidency -- but having led the Mormons to settle there after fleeing Missouri, he provoked violent backlash against his doctrines and was arrested and ultimately killed by gunfire while awaiting trial for perjury and polygamy. Beam's thoroughly researched and balanced narration of Smith's rise and fall will captivate anyone interested in American history, especially the history of religion. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
