Overview

"Big Mort," as he was known to his fellow mountain men in the mid 1830s, was an appropriate moniker for this 6'5", nearly 300-pound adventurer whose real name was Mordekiah Joshua Abram Liebovitch, a voluntarily displaced New York Jew who wandered into the Oregon Territories on a misbegotten trip to Chicago when he was just sixteen. It is now 1843 and he is returning to New York to, if possible, rejoin his family . . . if they will have him. He stops along the banks of the Mississippi River at a town called Nauvoo, Illinois, to refresh and prepare for a reconciliation, but in Nauvoo he finds much more than he had ever bargained for, having been dropped unaware into a Mormon stronghold. What follows is a touching love story overflowing with joy and sadness, humor and tragedy, selflessness and greed . . . every emotion that makes a reader thirst for more.
