The Mormon People: The Making of an American Faith
I got lucky at the library and checked this out; I thought I'd have to wait a long time to read this. It was shorter than I expected at about 250 pages and very readable, although sometimes it felt like I was flying through history. It seems like it will be dated soon though, although that was mostly in the preface and conclusion. The New York Times thought it was a little boring, and it was, in its way- not witty really, and certainly not sensational, but just solid (not stolid) history. The bibliography is excellent too.
