Sintesi dell'editore

Biography of Joseph Smith as written by his mother, Lucy Mack Smith. Shortly following the death of Joseph Smith in 1844, and into 1845, Lucy Mack Smith dictated her recollections and family story to Nauvoo schoolteacher Martha Jane Coray. Coray worked with her husband to compile these books of notes and other sources into a manuscript, which was then copied. Although surrounded by a great deal of controversy when first published by Orson Pratt in 1853, it was later published by the Church under the direction of Joseph F. Smith. It has been called "one of the essential sources for Mormon origins" by Richard L. Anderson, and in the words of Leonard Arrington it "perhaps tells more about Mormon origins than any other single source."

Very well done

Loved it. Wonderful history and insightful. A few words, like Nephi, were mispronounced, but other than that, very well done.

very interesting

Very iteresting. I found out a few things I did not know and I needed to look up. It was a good book to bring up topics and feelings which only a mother would know. Narrator, or the recording company, should have asked the LDS church how to pronounce words. If a new word is unfamiliar to you then don't guess! Proper names are not phonetically rooted - was very distracting. However, other than that the narrator did an excellent job and the voice was smooth and easy to listen to.

Interesting perspective.

I appreciated hearing Mother Smith’s perspective. The narration, however, was distracting. It was robotic, often lacking proper inflection. The reader seemed to literally read the words without understanding the content.

Thoroughly enjoyed

The reading of the book is sometimes overly dramatic and some of the words are mispronounced, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have studied church history quite a bit but still learned several new things and gained greater insights into the character and life of both Joseph Smith and his family. Great book!
