Some of its allegations about Mormon leaders and religious practices would have been considered by many Americans of that time to be immoral, or criminal, or both. The press seemed eager to find someone whose credentials would prove the case against the Mormons. But Fifteen Years among the Mormons was certainly not the last word on this subject, and far more serious charges would soon appear. Labeled by Mormons as lies or a hopeless mixture of fact and fiction, the book is still quoted occasionally by anti-Mormans. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2 lbs 1 oz.
