1 Mormonism's Last Colonizer - The Life and Times of William H. Smart

Smart, William B.New, Utah State University Press, 2008, 


Brand new hardcover book! ; Mormonism's Last Colonizer is an honest examination of an ancestor by his namesake. Included with the biography is a CD containing William H. Smart's extensive journals, which amounted to some ten thousand written pages -- a monumental personal record of Mormondom and its transitional period from nineteenth-century cultural separation into twentieth-century national integration.

By the early twentieth century, the era of organized Mormon colonization of the West from a base in Salt Lake City was all but over. One region of Utah had not been colonized. The Northern Ute reservation in the Uinta Basin remained in Native American hands. When the federal government decided to open the reservation to white settlement, William H. Smart -- a nineteenth-century, patriarchal Mormon elder living in the twentieth century; a polygamist in an era when plural marriage was banned by his church; a fervently moral stake president who as a youth had struggled with his sense of sinfulness; and an entrepreneurial businessman with theocratic, communal instincts -- set out to ensure that the Uinta Basin also would be part of the Mormon kingdom. ; 1.4 x 9.3 x 6.3 Inches; 352 pages,
