    Being a descendant of John Taylor I love to read books about his life beliefs and convictions This book is written by a descendant and with the other books that I have read on John Taylor I found this one a little bias against Brigham Young I understand that John and Brigham didn't often if ever see eye to eye but I do believe that John sustained Brigham as the leader of the LDS Church This book has insight and other information that you won't find elsewhereI would recommend this book to anyone that wants to have another look at John Taylor

    Mr Taylor has a strong bias against Brigham Young and an obsession with polygamy He fails to reconcile his admiration with his grandfather and his apparent disdain at best ambivalence for the Church and Gospel to which his grandfather dedicated his life He does provide some good information but he fails to portray his grandfather's life through the eye of faith President Taylor possessed

    Having met Samuel W Taylor and spent time with him at the Provo UT Public Library as a teenager I thought I would add this book to my list although I only have it as a download on my office computer Sam was a grandson of LDS President John Taylor many of whose family still live in Provo
