Roberts combines the story of Nauvoo's history with doctrinal development taking place within the Church during the turbulent 1840s into this single classic volume. Reviewing the Missouri agitation surrounding the relocation of the Saints into the swampy bogs of Commerce, Illinois, through its transformation into Nauvoo 'the Beautiful, ' the reader is led through petitions for redress to the federal government for previous losses in Missouri. This book also includes; the intrigue of John C. Bennett; the introduction of plural marriage; blame for the attempted assassination of Missouri's governor; the several local and state events surrounding the martyrdom of Joseph and Hyrum Smith; and the subsequent transition of Church leadership to the Twelve Apostles. This is one of the most complete historical accounts of the Nauvoo Period (1840-1846) - a critical era in Church development. " ; 5.5" x 8.5"; 477 pages; 0970800886
