Stories of the West are filled with heroes, outlaws, miners, cowboys, soldiers, and lawmen. But many popular histories fail to mention the pioneer preachers who helped settle the rugged mountains. A western town wasn't considered a fit place for women and children to live until it had at least one church. This unique book lets the frontier ministers tell their stories in their own words. Using primary sources and firsthand accounts, this unique book allows legends like John Dyer, Daniel Tuttle, and Sheldon Jackson to relate their adventures to a new generation. Their rugged exploits make for thrilling and inspirational reading, and they deserve to become common knowledge once more.
