The name conjures up images of exiles in winter camps more than a century ago, of covered wagons on the trail, of ox teams, Indians - pictures of a transplanted civilization 1, miles removed from the nearest American : Deseret Book Company.

This post is a mini-review of John Turner's Brigham Young: Pioneer Prophet (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, ). Other reviews, some positive, some less positive, have already appeared on blogs over the past few months. The editor of the Mormon Studies Review anticipates that a full review of the biography will appear in this December's volume. The foremost biography on Brigham Young! Ive read many books on BY and most are either subjective or slanted for or against the mormon church. This book delivers the good/bad of an important man in american history without an angle. Turner researched his subject more extensively than any other author of a religious leader since Bushman.
