About this Item

518 pages, frontis, illustrations, SIGNED by Bagley. Volume 13 in the Kingdom of the West Series. "This collection of narratives by four individuals who abandoned Mormonism-"apostates," as Brigham Young and other Latter-day Saint leaders labeled them-provides an overview of dissent from the beginning of the religion to the early twentieth century and presents a wide range of disaffection with the faith or its leaders. Newspaper articles, personal letters, journals, and sermons provide context for the testaments collected here-those of George Armstrong Hicks, Charles Derry, Ann Gordge, and Brigham Young Hampton. The four range from those who felt Brigham Young had not lived up to the precepts of Mormonism, to "backouts" who gave up and left Utah, to a plural wife who constructed a rich fantasy world, to a devoted Latter-day Saint who gave his all only to feel betrayed by his leaders. Young warned one dissenting group that they were "not playing with shadows," but with "the voice and the hand of the Almighty"; accordingly, many dissenters feared for their livelihoods, and some, for their lives.".
