Ever since its publication in 1874 the Autobiography of Parley P. Pratt has provided a fascinating look into the events that shaped the early history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Parley P. Pratt, a beloved Apostle and missionary, was an eyewitness to the rolling forth of the newly restored gospel. His vivid descriptions of the people, the places, and the events surrounding the early Saints have enlightened and inspired generations of readers. You will hear Parley's memorable account of Zion's Camp, his painful descriptions of mob actions against the Saints, and his colorful missionary experiences that took him to such places as England, the Pacific Islands, and South America. You will also hear the unforgettable description of "majesty in chains" as the Prophet Joseph Smith rebuked the guards: "Silence, ye fiends of the infernal pit. In the name of Jesus Christ I rebuke you, and command you to be still; I will not live another minute and hear such language. Cease such talk, or you or I die this instant!"

Elder Pratt suffered much for the Gospel's sake. He was largely self educated and cast aside worldly comforts to spread the word of Christ's Church. Because of his dedication, he was also part of many miracles and healings. He was a poet and wrote the lyrics for many hymns. Parley used flowery prose on occasion but his journal is also filled with great descriptions of times in the early 1800s. After such a spiritual life, it is unfortunate that he suffered such a terrible death. I recommend this book to any serious student of Church history.

I believe this man had a far greater education than he claimed. I am impressed that he was a real leader and stood like a rock for what he believed. I think this is especially good reading for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. It is a true history of one of the founders of the church. I was born and raised in Salt Lake City until age 25. Since then Idaho has been my home. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints, I have read and studied the church and it's founders considerably. In all these years however, I had never read the name of a town or village in Utah called Peteetneet. Interested? Look it up on line. Elder Pratt mentioned in the book that he stayed there overnight on a trip South. I was in Salt Lake City recently on family business and took advantage of the opportunity one afternoon to drive there. Very interesting. Great museum. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints and it's early leaders.

Read this on my Kindle little by little over the past several months. Felt like I was right there with Brother Pratt - from his suspenseful escape from prison in Missouri to his happier days in England, on the East Coast, and in Chile - and all the difficult journeys in between. Certainly one of the greatest of all Mormon missionaries. Learned a lot I didn't know about him, what he taught, and why he did it. Highly recommend this unedited autobiography not only for the life and times of Parley P. Pratt, but also for a first-hand view into founding of the West in the mid 1800s and the role played by bold Christian missionaries like Brother Pratt in that incredibly exciting period of American history.

This book read just like the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. He lived through slot of the horrible stuff that happened but always remained valiant. I was a little disturbed that he didn't think his marriages or the births of his children worth mentioning but towards the end of his book he mentions them lovingly and he obviously cared for them and loved to be with them. He was a great and humble man.

I very much enjoyed reading this book. Parley P Pratt has a way of describing something ordinary and have it read exquisitely.

i learned very much about conditions of a group of good souls who were beaten, whipped persecuted, defiled and killed in a most horrible of a circuststance. Yet before and after this event PPP was a very unusual man and kept on with the best of intensions to do the Lords work. Like Prohets and Apostles in times past he have his last hearbeat to his beloved Savior.

This is an exceptional history of the times of the restoration of the Lord's church upon the earth by an eye witness who is a true friend of God, and one endowed with a great gift of pen and speech.

I highly recommend this work to anyone interested in LDS matters and truth in religion.
