; John Taylor was the greatest symbol of pioneering Mormonism, the 'pugnacious prophet' who led the faithful into the final siege with the battle cry, 'the Kingdom of God or nothing. ' Polygamy and slavery, called by outsiders 'the twin relics of barbarism, ' were part of what the Mormons recognized as the law of God. This biography describes how John Taylor fiercely defended these beliefs for ten years, defying the law, the courts, Congress, and the US government. It describes how he finally went underground and directed the church from secret headquarters, and how, when Joseph Smith was murdered, Taylor and Parley Pratt led the first company who settled the Salt Lake valley.
