First edition copy, in three-quarter leather binding, of this important work on Territorial Utah and the history of the Mormon Church by T.B.H. Stenhouse (1825-82), a former member turned prominent and public heretic, who published this and other anti-Mormon texts.  Stenhouse's massive and comprehensive history of life in Utah under Brigham Young provides a detailed perspective on the events that shaped the Mormon faith and the people who played a pivotal role in its development.  It also explores the controversies surrounding the practice of polygamy and the eventual abandonment of the practice by the church.
