"The aim has been to give a strictly impartial account of the Mormons as they have been and as they are..." Having accepted the responsibilities of Secretary of the Territory of Utah, the author, Benjamin Ferris, spent 6 months during the severe winter of 1852-53 in the Valley of the Great Salt Lake, center of the Church of the Latter-Day Saints. The results were his written observations of the practical workings of the Mormon institutions. In this volume, he combines historical facts, his personal observations and voices from the Mormon community to present the history, government, doctrines, customs, and prospects of the Latter-day Saints. Originally published in 1854, this work includes an appendix plus over 25 black & white line drawings.
