Mormons — members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — have a unique heritage. Not only a faith but also a people, a society, a culture, the “Mormon Kingdom”... More > began in upstate New York, but built its strength within the shadows of the everlasting hills, in Utah. Mormondom gathered adherents from many nations, speaking many languages, mostly British and European. The melding of those languages and traditions has produced a “language” or a “folk vernacular” which is unique.

It is not published in an attempt to denigrate, only to enjoy — as inheritors of the culture — some of the peculiarities of our culture.< Less

Recollections of the Prophet Joseph Smith By Frederick M. Huchel
Hardcover: $42.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Joseph Smith, with the exception of his October 1840 discourse on priesthood, did not commit to writing his own sermons and teachings. He spoke and he taught, and we are indebted to his associates... More > for writing and compiling what he said. Several books of teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith have been compiled and published, and serve as a source for the great doctrines the Prophet taught. In the 1970s, Truman Madsen suggested to this compiler that someone ought to put together a collection of reminiscent sayings, statements, and doctrinal pronouncements of Joseph Smith, as remembered in the sermons, writings, and journals of those who heard him and knew him — the recollections of things he said, not published together elsewhere. This book is an effort to do just that, and in so doing, add to our understanding to the Prophet Joseph Smith.< Less

The Armillary Sphere By Frederick M. Huchel
Paperback: $13.25
Prints in 3-5 business days
In these days when space travel is taken for granted, and digital images from a colossal orbiting telescope are commonplace, and an astronomer’s official title is “astrophysicist,”... More > when the means and the tools of the old astronomy and the old astronomers have been relegated to museum cases, it is apropos — in this fiftieth anniversary of man’s alighting on the moon — to take a look backward to the days when astronomers were priests, and astronomy was both a royal and a sacred science. Men in those days saw the sky differently — and understood it differently. Their heavens were enclosed within the visible celestial sphere, and the mechanics of the heavens were understood using such tools as the armillary sphere. Even today, the armillary sphere has something to teach modern sky-watchers about the motions of the heavens, about the constellations and planets, and about a conception of the heavens which we have all but lost.< Less

Anyone who has read and enjoyed the delightful Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling, or has watched the movies based on those books, has been delighted and entertained by the stories. Some have...

One book, Harry Potter and History, has explored that topic. This book takes the subject further, exploring theintellectual connections, unknown to the books' author, between the world of Harry Potter and Mormon history.

HIdden All Around Us By Frederick M. Huchel
Paperback: $12.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Though years pass and generations of people come and go, along with their means of transportation, of cooking, of lighting and heating their abodes, they leave traces of their coming and going, of... More > their lives, of their existence, on the landscape. Much of what they leave crumbles and fades with time. Yet, there are traces, sometimes faint traces, of their lives and doings which remain, like the merest traces of ink or paint on a palimpsest of the original text and design. For those who spend years learning history, and learning to recognize the tools and methods, the furniture and building materials, the means by which men and women made their mark on the landscape — and the cultural and literary traces of their lives and works — it is possible to recover more of the past than might at first glance seem possible. In this book are morsels of history known and unknown by the casual observer, as well as a new article about the scalawag Reverend Ballard S. Dunn, late of Corinne and Brazil.< Less

Corinne, the “Gentile Capital of Utah,” the “Queen City of the Great Basin,” was an anomaly in Utah, when it was laid out and founded in the spring of 1869 at the spot where... More > the tracks of the Transcontinental Railroad were to cross the Bear River, just five miles west of one of the most Mormon of Utah towns, Brigham City, named for Brigham Young and home of one of the most successful of the co-operative “United Order” communities in Utah. It was inevitable that conflict would arise between Corinne and its neighbors. The saga of Corinne is one of the more fascinating tales of early Utah, with its twenty-eight saloons, its “soiled doves,” and its “divorce machines.” It is a story well worth reading.< Less
