Brigham Young - Pioneer Prophet

Brigham Young was the man who led the Latter-day Saints to the Great Basin and established the Church's headquarters in Salt Lake City. His latest biographer, John Turner, calls that his signal achievement, which makes him the greatest colonizer of the Western United States. Turner's new book takes advantage of recently available records in Church archives to provide a more nuanced picture of the "Lion of the Lord."
