About the Author

Martha Bradley is assistant professor of history at Brigham Young University.


[Bradley's] masterful treatment of Short Creek will not only become a standard reference for students of Mormon polygamy, but will also be appreciated by a larger audience as a much needed lesson on cross cultural understanding and religious tolerance."—Sunstone

"A careful, humane observer and a sharp, resourceful writer and researcher, Bradley has carved out a chapter of our collective past that many will find disturbing."—The Salt Lake Tribune

"One of the most accurate, insightful and analytical study of the roots and complexities of modern-day fundamentalism. [A] splendid volume. The value of Bradley's book is immeasurable. It illuminates a period of Mormon history largely misunderstood, and provides a heretofore unseen glimpse of yesterday and today's fundamentalist polygamist culture."—The Journal of Arizona History
