If you will excuse the shameless self-promotion, I was recently pleased to learn that my forthcoming biography of Brigham Young is available for advance purchase. In fact, it was rather surreal to have it appear while I was poring over page proofs. Just in case it sells out quickly, reserve your copy of Pioneer Prophet now! I am joking, of course.
If anyone is interested in a preview, Harvard has put together a podcast about the book, available here.
If you assign it for a class (sorry it's not shorter -- Brigham Young had quite a life), I'm very happy to do a conversation with your students, grade their papers, clean your office, etc.
