"My Best for the Kingdom provides a valuable history of several little-known events in early Mormon history- the Church in Tennessee and Kentucky in the 1830s, the Danites in Missouri, Mormon resistance to Missouri persecutions,... the James Emmett expedition, [and] pioneer Spanish Fork, Utah... John L. Butler's autobiography, given here in full, rivals and adds to the accounts of Hosea Stout and John D. Lee in telling the Mormon story of the 1830s, '40s, and '50s." - Leonard J. Arrington.
