      Heber C. Kimball was Mormonism's most colorful leader and a major force
        in shaping, sustaining, and spreading the Mormon faith. Only Joseph Smith
        and Brigham Young wielded as much authority or had as much influence during
        the first four decades of the Mormon church. This is the first comprehensive
        and objective biography of Kimball since 1888. Stanley B. Kimball, Heber's
        great-great-grandson, shows us the man in all of his many dimensions---missionary,
        pioneer, preacher, politician, farmer, father, and husband.
      "Superb! This is a superior biography, based almost entirely on
        manuscript sources, few of which have been used or even examined by other
        scholars. It is new, it is fresh, it is fast-moving, it has the ring of
        truth, there is little editorializing, and it is written with economy,
        clarity, and balance."
        -- Leonard J. Arrington, author of Brigham Young: American Moses
