3. A Mormon Mother: An Autobiography

Annie Clark Tanner relates her life growing up as the oldest daughter of the second wife of a very influential Mormon during the early years of the religion. She continues her own story of life as a second wife. The details of day-to-day life on the frontier and living this new religion make this book a must-read for those interested in polygamy or Mormon religion. The author includes her own personal letters and correspondences as well as newspaper articles of the day. This work serves as the perfect background for many of the escape narratives being published today.
