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 wonderfully written book, essential to students of American history. Misunderstood, and often maligned, Mormonism is a unique American creation. Most Americans have never heard of its founder, Joseph Smith, considered a Prophet by his followers but even by them, often seen as a somewhat problematic figure. This biography, which resulted in the excommunication of its author, once a beloved daughter of the Church, presents a nuanced, fast paced, readable and compelling account of Smith's American journey as a spell binding myth maker and martyr to the virulent spiritualism of his times.
