Rich witnessed important events in Latter-day Saint history: Joseph Smith's presidential campaign; the building of the Kirtland (Ohio), Nauvoo (Illinois), and Logan (Utah) temples; and the settlement of San Bernardino (California) and Bear Lake Valley (Idaho). Rich's experiences enable readers to explore early LDS Church history and the settlement of the West.
