Loved this book A fascinating read of the last days of Joseph Smith and the conditions that lead up to the martyrdom I ve read this several times before but read it again yesterday prior to my going to Nauvoo later this summer It s a fast read just a couple of hours. This book is John Taylor s personal account of the martyrdom at Carthrage Jail It was interesting to hear about the events leading up to the death of Joseph Smith and to learnabout John Taylor and the amazing man that he was. It is a wonderful follow up to our recent trip to Palmyra, Kirtland, Nauvoo, Carthage, and Winter Quarters. This book is amazing There is so much that we don t know about the things that happened during the early days of the Church This book really is a treasure. Wonderful There is nothing like reading an eye witness account of the day the prophet and his brother were martyrered. This book was very well written it It helps that John Taylor wrote 90 % of it. A lot of interesting details about the events surrounding the martyrdom and the role of some of the characters we never hear much about, i.e Governor Ford
