Brand new hardcover book! ; The Abraham H. Cannon diaries read like few others from the late nineteenth century.

Even mundane entries such as donating $20 for “a plan of erecting a monument in this city to Brigham Young” and his attendance at meetings of the Bullion-Beck Mine are interesting. Bu...

Roberts, then laboring on a mission in Tennessee, confided to his journal: "I am twenty-five years old today: perhaps one-half of my life has passed away—and what have I done? But little of anything, either of good or evil; my misdeeds are like my talents—on the small order.
