William Clayton joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1838, becoming an important figure in church history. 
Friend and scribe to Joseph Smith, Clayton recorded the revelation on plural marriage, wrote the first history of the Nauvoo Temple, and penned the powerful hymn “Come, Come Ye Saints.” One of the original settlers of Salt Lake City, Clayton participated in a variety of religious, economic, and civil activities throughout his life.
He experienced nearly all the joys and struggles possible for a church member of his day, and yet, following his own hymnal advice, “no toil nor labor” did he fear.

  •     Lots of interesting information, but a tedious read. It is full of facts, but not written in a way that makes it easy reading. More like a textbook than a biography.
  •     A fascinating history of 19th century experiences. The story of Clayton's Mormon conversion, immigration to America, his acceptance of polygamy and his devotion to Joseph Smith and Brigham Young give insight into the attraction of the doctrines and practices of the Church of Jesus Christ. Well researched and written!
  •     Professor Allen paints a sympathetic, but realistic portrait of a sincere believer in and confidant of Joseph Smith. I highly recommend this book as a reflection of the reasons that many of Joseph Smith's followers stayed with him. I loved the book and came to love both William Clayton and, through his eyes, Joseph Smith.
