Along with thousands of others I believe that this is the single greatest work of LDS historiography ever published, even though it was first published 58 years ago. Whether intending to or not, Arrington demonstrated at length that religious devotion and inspiration do not necessarily aid in the achievement of practical or economic success. Prior to GBK it was easy enough to read LDS history and get the impression that the pioneers batted a thousand, but this obscured and even belittled the difficulties they endured and the sacrifices they made. My guess is that absent the Mormon pioneers it would have been at least another decade before any whites tried to settle the Great Basin.

I love this book so much. No sugar coating. Well researched. Most histories of Mormons are either focused on trying to convert you or convince you that the Church is a farce. Arrington just wanted to tell you what happened in as open and honest a way as possible. It humanizes the pioneer settlers in a way no other book has for me. These were faithful people who made mistakes, had squabbles, yet persevered with a gritty determination.

This book does a decent job detailing the economic ventures of the Mormon pioneers, mostly in Utah. While the book occasionally uses obvious pro-Mormon language, still it serves as an accurate and objective accounting of Mormon economic activity--compiling several details that may be challenging to find elsewhere.

After reading this book its hard to not puzzle over the irony that a group of people who today are so fiscally conservative and proud of their American capitalism were once the most socialist leaning culture of any significant size in the United States.

Excellent book and quick arrival.

I already knew that the early Saints had done remarkable things in the realm of economics - attempted the United Orders, set up very prosperous cooperatives, and launched the Zions Central Boards of Trade (which would help us immensely today).

However, Great Basin Kingdom gave me a clearer understanding of how intensely the early Saints worked to realize Zion. They put us to shame! We TALK about building Zion, they DID it! The colonization effort with its egalitarian methods of dividing up property in new settlements struck me how united they were - we are so conditioned today by Babylon's economic values, I doubt we are humble enough to do what they did. (We should repent).

This book opened my eyes (even wider) to the reality that Zion is not just a spiritual endeavor, it is economic as well. The author also verified my suspicion that the polygamy raids were a smoke screen for the Church's enemies to destroy the economic powerhouse we were building.

Fascinating!
