5 BECK, KATHRINE. Opal: A Life Of Enchantment, Mystery And Madness.
Viking, New York: 2003. 0670031453 / 9780670031450 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
In 1920, Americans were captivated by the childhood diary of Opal Whiteley, an enigmatic young woman from a small logging town in the Northwest. The diary, which Whiteley claimed a cruel foster sister had torn to shreds many years before, was painstakingly pasted together before publication. It chronicled Opal's adventures in the forests of Oregon at the age of seven and was hailed as a revelatory portrait of a child's relationship to God and the natural world. It also contained strange clues to a mystery surrrounding the child'es birth. Why were parts of the diary - written in crayon on old paper bags and butcher paper - in French? And who were the mysterious Angel Mother and Father the child referred to? Thoroughly examining Opal's personal papers and letters and interviewing those who knew her, Kathrine Beck has put together the most complete picture of her life yet.

14 CLELAND, ROBERT GLASS; BROOKS, JUANITA. A Mormon Chronicle: The Diaries Of John D. Lee, 1848-1876, Volume 1.
University of Utah Press, Salt Lake City: 1983. 087480230X / 9780874802306 h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
John Doyle Lee (1812-1877) was one of the most controversial figures of early Mormon history. A fervent convert, he was adopted by Brigham Young and rose to become a leading member of the church's hierarchy. Lee left behind a number of colorful diaries that reveal in fascinating clarity and detail the everyday life of Utah's pioneer settlers. In them, he describes his close relationship with Brigham Young, his experiences in converting Native Americans to Mormonism, his trials with farming and livestock, his encounters with his 19 wives, and his eventual exile to the barren wastelands of Lee's Ferry. In the 1950s, five of Lee's diaries in the Huntington collections were meticulously edited and annotated by historians Robert Glass Cleland and Juanita Brooks, and published in two volumes by the Huntington Library in 1955 to great acclaim as A Mormon Chronicle, The Diaries of John D. Lee, 1848-1876. The University of Utah Press kept the book in print until the 1990s; it has now been reprinted as a Huntington Library Classic with a new foreword by Andrew Rolle, a Huntington research fellow and retired Cleland Professor of History from Occidental College. In his foreword, Rolle discusses the collaboration between Cleland, a leading historian of the Southwest, and Brooks, a notable scholar of Mormon history.
