3 Aird, Polly, Jeff Nichols, Will Bagley Mormon Convert, Mormon Defector A Scottish Immigrant in the American West, 1848-1861 Foreword by William P. MacKinnon
Norman The Arthur H. Clark Company 2009 First Edition Hard Cover New 
320 pages, frontis, maps, illustrations. "In Mormon Convert, Mormon Defector, Aird tells of Scottish emigrants who endured a harrowing transatlantic and transcontinental journey to join their brethren in the valley of the Great Salt Lake. But to McAuslan and others like him, the Promised Land of Salt Lake City turned out to be quite different from what was promised: droughts and plagues of locusts destroyed crops and brought on famine, and U.S. Army troops threatened on the borders. Mormon leaders responded with fiery sermons attributing their trials to divine retribution for backsliding and sin. When the leaders countenanced violence and demanded absolute obedience, Peter McAuslan decided to abandon his adopted faith. With his family, and escorted by a U.S. Army detachment for protection, he fled to California." Univ. O.K.

4 Aird, Polly, Jeff Nichols, Will Bagley Playing With Shadows Voices of Dissent in the Mormon West
Norman The Arthur H. Clark Company 2011 First Edition Hard Cover New 
518 pages, frontis, illustrations, SIGNED by Bagley. Volume 13 in the Kingdom of the West Series. "This collection of narratives by four individuals who abandoned Mormonism-"apostates," as Brigham Young and other Latter-day Saint leaders labeled them-provides an overview of dissent from the beginning of the religion to the early twentieth century and presents a wide range of disaffection with the faith or its leaders. Newspaper articles, personal letters, journals, and sermons provide context for the testaments collected here-those of George Armstrong Hicks, Charles Derry, Ann Gordge, and Brigham Young Hampton. The four range from those who felt Brigham Young had not lived up to the precepts of Mormonism, to "backouts" who gave up and left Utah, to a plural wife who constructed a rich fantasy world, to a devoted Latter-day Saint who gave his all only to feel betrayed by his leaders. Young warned one dissenting group that they were "not playing with shadows," but with "the voice and the hand of the Almighty"; accordingly, many dissenters feared for their livelihoods, and some, for their lives."
