Dale L. Morgan (1914-1971) remains one of the most respected historians of the American West--and his broad and influential career one of the least understood. Among today's scholars his reputation rests largely on his studies of the fur trade and overland trails, yet throughout his life, Morgan's perennial goal was to complete a history of the Latter Day Saints. In this volume--the second of a two-part set--Morgan's writings on the Mormons finally receive the attention and analysis they merit.

Dale Morgan on the Mormons is a far-reaching compilation of the historian's published and unpublished writings. Edited and annotated by Morgan scholar Richard L. Saunders, the collection includes not only essays but also book reviews and bibliographic studies, many published here for the first time. At the heart of this second volume is a newly corrected presentation of Morgan's unfinished magnum opus, "The Mormons." Also included are a number of forgotten treasures, including Morgan's still-definitive article on the Emmett Company, which headed west from Nauvoo in 1844 as the first party of westering Latter Day Saints; his privately distributed bibliography of the lesser Mormon churches; and the historian's last published reflections on the Mormon experience. Throughout, Saunders provides informative introductions that place each of the writings or groups of writings into biographical and historical context.
