Summary
"At thirty-nine years old, Smith went from charismatic leader to public enemy: how his most seismic revelation -- the doctrine of polygamy -- created a rift among his people [Church of Latter-day Saints]; how that schism turned to violence; and how, ultimately, Smith could not escape the consequences of his ambition and pride. American Crucifixion is a gripping story of scandal and violence, with deep roots in our national identity."--www.Amazon.com
