MORMON COUNTRY - Stegner Wallace - 1942. 
New York: Duell, Sloan, and Pearce, 1942. First Edition, Affectionately and very personally INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY STEGNER "For Jinny, who has already signed up as official historian on the post-war expedition to God's country. Wally". 8vo, publisherâs original maroon boards, the spine lettered in gilt, in the original dustjacket. 362pp. A very fine copy but for subtle fading to the spine edge and gentle wear to the jacket. A VERY HANDSOME COPY OF THIS VERY PERSONALLY AND AFFECTIONATELY INSCRIBED FIRST EDITION AND IMPORTANT STEGNER TITLE. The story of Mormon Country is indeed a fascinating one. It begins with the great westward trek under the leadership of Brigham Young and goes forward as the chronicle of tireless and superhuman achievements by a people of faith. The myths and legends of the Mormons, their folkways and great leaders, are relatively unknown to many Americans. But theirs is a colorful saga, and it is the saga of a people who built by group effort a region entirely different from the rest of the West in its institutions and habits of living.
