The Kingdom or Nothing: The Life of John Taylor, Militant Mormon


    "As half the church fell away in Ohio, the Taylors escaped to Missouri with the faithful just in time for the 1838 Mormon War. John's role became that of an advocate with Congress—to convince them that it was non-Mormons who sacked the county seat and burned their own homes, for instance....

    "Taylor's eventual tenure as church president was spent 'on the dodge' from federal marshals,... Among his greatest achievements was the settlement of nearly as much territory as that colonized by his more famous predecessor, Brigham Young." (from back cover)
