    1. My only complaint is that, in the layout of the book, either the biographical article on McLellin should have come before his journals or the journals should have been annotated with better introductions before each volume to situate the journals within the context of McLellin's life. Other than that flaw, this was an outstanding book that detailed an early Mormon convert's rise to the upper levels of LDS church leadership and then his sliding away from the church.
