No Man Knows My History
No Man Knows My History The Life of Joseph Smith, the Mormon Prophet By Brodie, Fawn McKay Book - 1971 | 2d ed., rev. and enl

A very well written and researched biography of a puzzling figure by a woman who had been raised Mormon in Utah. (The author was a professor at UCLA). This book is also excellent history of rural America in the early 1800's, showing how a character such as Jos Smith, came to be. He was definitely a product of his environment! Throw in his impressive ability to create and tell good stories along with his aversion to farm work and voila!
