Edition Details (From the publisher):

For over a decade the notorious gunman Lassiter, an implacable enemy of the Mormons, has been searching for his sister, Milly Erne, who disappeared after being lured from her Illinois home...Elder Tull, a Mormon churchman, has published his claim to make Jane Withersteen his second wife and obtain her vast inheritance. But Jane is romantically involved with Bern Venters, a Gentile. Just as Elder Tull and a group of Mormons are about to whip Venters and banish him from Utah, Lassiter rides in and intervenes.

For over ninety years, this powerful novel existed only in a profoundly censored version. In this restored edition based on Grey's handwritten manuscript, it can finally be read as the author wrote it.
