Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Why were LDS Relief Society meetings suspended for more than two decades? Who was the first settler in Utah? How did the RLDS Church gain possession of the Kirtland Temple? Readers will find answers to these and 497 other questions in George Givens's 500 Little-Known Facts in Mormon History, which offers "brief, unusual facts... to make Mormon history readable and interesting." The chapters are organized in roughly chronological order, beginning in 1813 and ending in 1921. Givens has an eye for entertaining detail and makes an effort to tell the reader when a particularly colorful story is "possibly apocryphal." Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
