George Q. Cannon
by Davis Bitton
Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1999 (554p.)

Genre:  Biography / Memoir
One can scarcely expect to understand the history of Mormonism without knowing George Q. Cannon. Although he was never president of the LDS Church, few surpassed Cannon as a leader, shaper, and defender of nineteenth-century Mormonism.
An impressive human being, George Q. Cannon served faithfully in the efforts to build the kingdom. Among other things, he was a missionary to Hawaii; a journalist, editor, and publisher; a delegate to the U.S. Congress for ten years; the husband of six wives and father of forty-two children; an apostle for more than forty years; and counselor to three presidents of the Church.

Although George Q. Cannon's biography could take up volumes, author David Bitton's one-volume work is true to the remarkable achievements, spirit and life of an exceptional individual. [publisher blurb]
