Reviews about Brigham Young, the man and his work (7):
Virn
Great condition but a little moldy smelling. I aired it out for a few weeks and it's fine!
Nayatol
You come to know the prophet through his words and life stories. This a complete history of his entire life.
Tyler Is Not Here
I was told this book would be next to impossible to find, not only did I find it, but Amazon had a kindle version of it!
Cozius
It came as agreed
Shalinrad
Not an impartial read,but certainly gives the flavor of the character of the man and the many challenges he faced.
Era
Although this book is called "Brigham Young: The Man and His Work," it would be better called, "Brigham Young: His Work." As Taylor notes in the introduction to "The Last Pioneer: John Taylor, a Mormon Prophet," In the 500+ pages of this book, not once does Nibley mention that Brigham Young had more than one wife.

Moreover, I'd refine the title in two more instances: "Brigham Young: His political work, a documentary history."

Admittedly, Brigham Young is a man who defies categorization. Religionist, colonist, politician, historical figure: he is all of these, and much more. So any one-volume biography is going to miss something.

But Nibley's focus is narrower than his title indicates. In fact, the book is mostly a series of cited documents (hence my inclusion of `a documentary history' in my proposed refined title), with first person connecting sentences.

So as you read, you feel like you are standing next to an eager archivist who is giving you a sneaking glance at his collection. Thus it is not quite history, lacking analysis.

But this does not make the book bad.

(This chatty approach may be a Nibley family characteristic. Hugh W. Nibley wrote "During the winter of 1921, when President [Charles] Nibley was writing his reminiscences at Ocean Park, California, he used to read the manuscript to the family of the author in the evenings, telling as he went the much better stories left out of the official biography. This was one of them, and has since been repeatedly confirmed by Preston Nibley, who had it from the same source" Brother Brigham Challenges the Saints (The Collected Works of Hugh Nibley, Vol 13), Ch. 13, n 1).

So this book is good if you are looking for a survey book, or an alternative to Brigham Young: American Moses. And if you want to know Brigham Young's external accomplishments--cities founded, tours and preaching circuits made, and his teachings as a prophet and as a governor. It's a mix of secular and spiritual. But then again, Young always denied there was a hard and fast line between the two.

But what if you want to know Brigham Young the man? Part of the man is here: again, there are ample primary sources in the book. And his ideas can be found in Discourses of Brigham Young and Teachings Of Presidents Of The Church - Brigham Young.

But If a person is interested in the complex (to say the least) family life of the man, it's not here. A supplementary read is Brigham Young At Home.

I just found a copy which was given to a friend of Heber J. Grant, with his signature in it.
