Comments: "According to the late Dale Morgan, Robert Richards is a pseudonym and the work should be considered a primitive precursor of `the Mormon novel.' The author describes the journey of the Saints from Nauvoo to Salt Lake, beginning on February 3, 1846. He then records how he fled from Salt Lake as an apostate and brings his narration to an end in California." Wagner-Camp 243:1. Howes R-250. Cowan p. 531. Graff 3488. From the library of Thomas W. Streeter with his bookplate. Streeter Sale 3061. Internally, a tight, bright copy.
