1 HEBER C. KIMBALL - Mormon Patriarch and Pioneer

Kimball, Stanley B.New, University of Illinois Press, 1986, Champaign, IL, U.S.A.

Paperback



Brand New Book. ; Heber C. Kimball was Mormonism's most colorful leader and a major force in shaping, sustaining, and spreading the Mormon faith. Only Joseph Smith and Brigham Young wielded as much authority or had as much influence during the first four decades of the Mormon church. This is the first comprehensive and objective biography of Kimball since 1888. Stanley B. Kimball, Heber's great-great-grandson, shows us the man in all of his many dimensions---missionary, pioneer, preacher, politician, farmer, father, and husband.

"Superb! This is a superior biography, based almost entirely on manuscript sources, few of which have been used or even examined by other scholars. It is new, it is fresh, it is fast-moving, it has the ring of truth, there is little editorializing, and it is written with economy, clarity, and balance." -- Leonard J. Arrington, author of Brigham Young: American Moses ; 6" x 9"; 343 pages,

3 Villages on Wheels - A Social History of the Gathering to Zion

Kimball, Stanley BNew, Greg Kofford Books, 2011, Salt Lake City, UT

Paperback



Brand New! %%

; The enduring saga of Mormonism is its great trek across the plains, and understanding that trek was the life work of Stanley B. Kimball, master of Mormon trails. This final work, a collaboration he began and which was completed after his death in 2003 by his photographer-writer wife, Violet, explores that movement westward as a social history, with the Mormons moving as “villages on wheels.”

Set in the broader context of transcontinental migration to Oregon and California, the Mormon trek spanned twenty-two years, moved approximately 54,700 individuals, many of them in family groups, and left about 7,000 graves at the trailside.

Like a true social history, this fascinating account in fourteen chapters explores both the routines of the trail—cooking, cleaning, laundry, dealing with bodily functions—and the dramatic moments: encountering Indians and stampeding buffalo, giving birth, losing loved ones to death, dealing with rage and injustice, but also offering succor, kindliness, and faith. Religious observances were simultaneously an important part of creating and maintaining group cohesiveness, but working them into the fabric of the grueling day-to-day routine resulted in adaptation, including a “sliding Sabbath.” The role played by children and teens receives careful scrutiny; not only did children grow up quickly on the trail, but the gender boundaries guarding their “separate spheres” blurred under the erosion of concentrating on tasks that had to be done regardless of the age or sex of those available to do them. Unexpected attention is given to African Americans who were part of this westering experience, and Violet also gives due credit to the “four-legged heroes” who hauled the wagons westward.
