6 in stock



This issue begins with three literary articles: two examining western author Zane Gray’s treatment of Mormons in his novels, and one describing the representations of Mormonism in the satirical magazine¬†Puck¬†during the early part of the twentieth century. Historians will be interested in a letter from the first Mormon bishop, Edward Partridge, to his sister Emily Dow. Also included are a sociological study of family size and academic achievement, an economic analysis of the United Order, a discussion of conjectural emendation for the text of the Book of Mormon, and a bibliography of Mormon books newly published the previous year (1977).
