Religion, politics, and sugar : the Mormon Church, the federal government, and the Utah-Idaho Sugar Company, 1907-1921 by Matthew C Godfrey( )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One famous target of Progressive Era attempts to rein in monopolistic big business was the eastern Sugar Trust. Less known is how federal regulators also tried to break monopoly control over beet sugar in the West by going after the Utah-Idaho Sugar Company, a business supported and controlled by the Latter-day Saints church and run by Mormon authorities." "As sugar beet agriculture boomed, the Mormon church's involvement led directly to monopolistic practices by the Utah-Idaho Sugar Company and to federal investigations. Church leaders encouraged members, a majority population in much of the intermountain West, to patronize the company exclusively, as suppliers and consumers. As early as 1890, Mormon church president Wilford Woodruff had called missionaries to raise money for the fledgling company and asserted divine inspiration for church support." "Utah-Idaho bridged the cooperative, theocratic, self-sufficient economic model of nineteenth-century Mormonism and the integration of the Mormon West into the national market economy. Religion, Politics, and Sugar shows, through the example of an important western business, how national commercial, political, and legal forces in the early twentieth century came west and, more specifically, how they affected the important role the Mormon church played in economic affairs in the intermountain West."--BOOK JACKET
River of interests : water management in south Florida and the Everglades, 1948-2010 by Matthew C Godfrey( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1948 Congress answered the outcry of Florida residents for both flood protection and a more reliable drinking water supply by authorizing the Central and Southern Flood Control Project, otherwise known as the C & SF Project. Shortly thereafter, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began construction on one of the nation's largest infrastructure projects. While the project served its intended purposes far better than ever anticipated, it also caused extensive damage to the naturally occurring ecosystems of south Florida, including the Everglades ecosystem located within and beyond Everglades National Park. "River of Interests: Water Management in South Florida and the Everglades, 1948-2000," is a history of the construction of the C & SF Project and the project's unintended impacts on the environment, and the evolution of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP)

The Joseph Smith Papers. April 1834 - September 1835 by Joseph Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accomplishing the "redemption of Zion" was Joseph Smith's primary concern for much of 1834 and 1835. After the Latter-day Saints had been forcibly removed from their lands in Jackson County, Missouri--the place where they believed God had commanded them to build the city of Zion--Joseph Smith led numerous efforts to reclaim those lands and restore the Saints to their homes. Covering April 1834 through September 1835, the ninety-three documents featured in this fourth volume of the Documents series of The Joseph Smith Papers shed light on Joseph Smith's attempts to redeem Zion and reveal his maturation as a leader and prophet for a growing church facing nearly constant challenges."--DeseretBook.com

Zion's Camp, 1834 : march of faith( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the spring and summer of 1834, a group of 230 men, women, and children traveled to Missouri under Joseph Smith's leadership to help the Latter-day Saints who had been ejected from Jackson County to regain their lands. It was a difficult march of about 900 miles, and men and women were tested, tried, and proven. When it was over, Zion was not redeemed, no land had been recovered, and charges of failure were levied against the expedition and Joseph Smith. This volume, written by the most informed scholars in the world on this subject, tells the story of Zion's Camp, including its successes and challenges. It explores what those who actually participated in the march felt about their experience. It comprehensively brings together those documents and diaries that best represent the history of this fascinating story. If ever there were an event in early Latter-day Saint history that reminds one of the Lord's words, 'My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord, ' it is this story (Isaiah 55:8)."--Provided by publisher
