By Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

From the writer of A Midwife's story, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Bancroft Prize for History, and The Age of Homespun--a revelatory, nuanced, and deeply intimate examine the area of early Mormon ladies whose probably traditional lives belied an astonishingly innovative spirit, force, and determination.

A lovely and sure-to-be arguable e-book that items jointly, via greater than dozen nineteenth-century diaries, letters, albums, minute-books, and quilts left through first-generation Latter-day Saints, or Mormons, the never-before-told tale of the earliest days of the ladies of Mormon "plural marriage," whose correct to vote within the country of Utah was once given to them via a Mormon-dominated legislature as an outgrowth of polygamy in 1870, fifty years prior to the vote nationally ratified through Congress, and who turned political actors regardless of, or as a result of, their marital preparations. Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, writing of this small team of Mormon ladies who have formerly been noticeable as mere names and dates, has brilliantly reconstructed those textured, advanced lives to offer us a fulsome portrait of who those ladies have been and in their "sex radicalism"--the concept that a lady may still decide on while and with whom to undergo children.

From the Hardcover edition.
