Maurine Whipple, author f what some critics consider Mormonism'a greatest novel, The Giant Joshua, is an enigma. Her prize-winning novel has never been out of print, and its portrayal of the founding of St. George draws on her own family history to produce its unforgettable and candid portrait of plural marriage's challenges. Yet Maurine's life is full of contradictions and unanswered questions, Veda Tebbs Hale, a personal friend of the paradoxical novelist, answers these questions with sympathy and tact, nailing each insight down with thorough research in Whipple's vast but under-utilized collected papers.

About the Author:

Veda Tebbs Hale grew up in Panguitch, Utah, the descendant of Henrie, Tebbs, Asay, Riding, Prince, Schow, and Lee ancestors who were among the first settlers in southern Utah, including in St. George during the period covered by Maurine Whipple's The Giant Joshua. Veda had been deeply moved by her first reading of the St. George saga and returned to it repeatedly.Veda and her husband, Glen, raised their three sons in Murray, Utah, and then at a cattle ranch in Kamas, Utah. In 1990, they moved to St. George where Glen managed Central Storage, and they owned and operated a mailing service business until 2000.Surprised to discover that Maurine was still alive, Veda befriended the elderly novelist and Carol Jensen, Maurine's legal guardian, and soon decided to write a full-scale biography. Veda conducted informal interviews with the writer, relatives, and associates, explored deeply in Maurine's papers held at Brigham Young University, and painstakingly reconstructed the national and regional background of Maurine Whipple's life.Veda, a painter, and Glen spend summers at their dream log cabin on the Tebbs family ranch near Panguitch Lake and market Veda's art in her gallery in downtown Panguitch. Their winters are spent in Pleasant Grove, Utah, near their family. She is the author of a novel, The Ragged Circle (Springville, Utah: Salt Press, 2003).
