Brigham Young, the Quorum of the Twelve, and the Latter-Day Saint investigation of the Mountain Meadows Massacre by Thomas G Alexander( )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On September 11, 1857, a wagon train of emigrants passing through the Utah Territory on their way to California were massacred at Mountain Meadows. Although today??s historians agree that the principal perpetrators were members of the Mormon militia in southern Utah, how much the central Mormon leadership, especially Brigham Young at the top, knew about the massacre, when and how they learned about it, and the extent of a cover up afterward are still matters of controversy and debate. In this 12th volume of the Arrington Lecture Series, Thomas Alexander (Lemuel Redd Professor of Western Ameri

A clash of interests : Interior Department and Mountain West, 1863-96 by Thomas G Alexander( Book )
3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nineteenth-century America was boasted as "the land of the free". And it was- if a person happened to be an Anglo-American Protestant farmer. But what of the Indian, the Mormon, the cattleman, and the logger? They were dissatisfied. Why? What made the difference in the Mountain West? Federal misperception and mismanagement. Perceiving the Mountain West to be an undeveloped Midwest, the government ignored territorial interests and needs. Here is an exploration of the arguments used for and against federal policies and an examination of the actual needs of the Mountain West. -- from Book Jacket

The last part takes a region-by-region approach to survey the important, primarily for hard-rock mining, areas of the state
