Emma Lee (2245)
6" (15 cm) wide x 9" (23 cm) high
by Juanita Brooks
Emma Batchelor was an English convert to the Mormon church who came to Utah with the Martin and Willie handcart companies. A plural wife of John D. Lee, she saw the best and the worst of polygamy and came as near to the stark tragedy of the Mountain Meadows Massacre as one could without participating firsthand.
Through this biography of Emma Batchelor Lee French, Juanita Brooks has captured the strength, adventure, and tragedy of one woman's life on the western frontier.
"Brooks writes with a depth of feeling and insight possible only to one with her knowledge of the southern frontier of Mormondom and her grasp of the affairs of Emma Lee."
