Studies of the Book of Mormon by B. H Roberts( )

13 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies of the Book of Mormon presents this respected church leader's investigation into Mormonism's founding scripture. Reflecting his talent for combining history and theology, B.H. Roberts considered the evident parallels between the Book of Mormon and Ethan Smith's A View to the Hebrews, a book that predated the Mormon scripture by seven years. If the Book of Mormon is not historical, but rather a reflection of the misconceptions current in Joseph Smith's day regarding Indian origins, then its theological claims are suspect as well, Roberts asserted. In this and other research, it was Roberts's proclivity to go wherever the evidence took him, in this case anticipating and defending against potential future problems. Yet the manuscript was so poorly received by fellow church leaders that it was left to Roberts alone to decide whether he had overlooked some important piece of the puzzle or whether the Mormon scripture's claims were, in fact, illegitimate. Clearly for most of his colleagues, institutional priorities overshadowed epistemological integrity. But Roberts's path-breaking work has been judged by the editor to be methodologically sound--still relevant today. It shows the work of a keen mind, and illustrates why Roberts was one of the most influential Mormon thinkers of his day. The manuscript is accompanied by a preface and introduction, a history of the documents' provenances, a biographical essay, correspondence to and from Roberts relating to the manuscript, a bibliography, and an afterword--all of which put the information into perspective
The Bannock of Idaho by Brigham D Madsen( Book )

8 editions published between 1958 and 1996 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1958, The Bannock of Idaho tells the story of broken agreements, diminishing food supplies, and of a proud and independent people who refused the blandishments of white civilization. The Bannock, a branch of the Northern Paiute, acquired the horse in the eighteenth century and developed a culture similar in many ways to that of the Plains Indians. Possessed of an aggressive and warlike spirit, the Bannock soon achieved the reputation of being skillful horse thieves and courageous warriors. The first white explorers left accounts of their difficulties with the proud and turbulent Bannock, and Bannock warriors soon became the scourge of the western roads from Fort Bridger to Humboldt Sink and Fort Boise. This ended when General Patrick E. Connor's California Volunteers defeated a combined force of Shoshoni and Bannock in 1863 in the nation's largest massacre of Indians at Bear River

Chief Pocatello by Brigham D Madsen( Book )

3 editions published between 1986 and 1999 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the years between 1859 and 1864, Chief Pocatello's Northwestern Shoshoni tribe in southern Idaho and northern Utah garnered national attentionas a band of fierce Indian outlaws, Mormon leaders, Indian agents, army officers, newspaper editors, and even President Abraham Lincoln noted Pocatello's seemingly unfair demands and efforts on behalf of his people's well-being." "Madsen looks beyond popular opinions and historical belief that characterized the legendary chief as an overly bold and intransigent leader and paints Chief Pocatello in a different light. Dedicated to a people who faced starvation and destruction as white emigrating settlers continued to flock through his homeland - the junction of the California Trail and the Salt Lake Road - Pocatello was committed to preserving the life of his people. Even as game and land resources were severely depleted, he sought little other than to provide for his Shoshoni tribe."--BOOK JACKET
