An account of Joseph Smith’s life, from childhood to death, by T. H. Safford. Safford summarizes the remarkable spread of Mormonism worldwide and then summarizes the life of Joseph Smith and the Mormons’ movement from New York to Illinois. Joseph used a stone found by his father in a well to search for hidden treasures. Smith’s “golden book” was most likely from Mexico, and the translation for the Book of Mormon was largely taken from Solomon Spaulding’s novel.
