(PUBVintage)Second edition, revised. In 1823 an angel appeared to Joseph Smith, leading him to a cache of gold plates purporting to be the history of the lost tribes of Israel. From these new gospels and Smith's dynamic personality arose Mormonism. "Rich and supple,"---Saturday Review. 499 pages, softcover.
The first paperback edition of the classic biography of the founder of the Mormon church, this book attempts to answer the questions that continue to surround Joseph Smith. Was he a genuine prophet, or a gifted fabulist who became enthralled by the products of his imagination and ended up being martyred for them? 24 pages of photos. Map.
