Tight and decent first edition of this soupy fiction by a daughter of powerful LDS president Brigham Young (who appears as a prominent character in it) and is set during the actual 1857-58 Utah War or Mormon War. Gates (1956-1933) was a noted writer/editor/women's rights advocate in her own right. (1856-1933). Rather uncommon.
