Reviews of Your Affectionate Father

Cover_Your_Affectionate_FatherI am looking for some Amazon reviews for Your Affectionate Father, Charles F. Smith. Please contact me, if you would be interested in reading and reviewing this book.

In that regard, William MacKinnon has offered to review the book for the Utah Historical Quarterly in Salt Lake City. Mr. MacKinnon has written two books on the Mormon Campaign: At Sword’s Point: Volumes 1 and 2. Bill is an authority on the Mormon Campaign and was intrigued by the new information on the campaign contained in General Smith’s letters to his daughter, Fanny.

According to Bill’s Wikipedia page,  he is the author of At Sword’s Point: A Documentary History of the Utah War to 1858. MacKinnon has published over thirty articles on the history of the American West. In 2008, the Mormon History Association awarded MacKinnon its Thomas L. Kane Award. In 2010, he contributed an article to Mormonism: A Historical Encyclopedia. Please check out Bill’s books on Amazon.

I hope you will join Bill in lending your support to Your Affectionate Father, Charles F. Smith.
