An Uncommon Common Pioneer: The Journals of James Henry Martineau, 1828–1918

Edited by Donald G. Godfrey and Rebecca S. Martineau-McCarty

"The journals of James Henry Martineau are comparable the most descriptively written diaries of their period. They shed light on the historical events of the era, the lives of average people, and the impact of Church leaders. At times they read more like a novel than a journal. They are exciting, testimony building, and detailed. The reader will see clearly what Martineau is picturing and feel what he is experiencing. His focus was on his family and his work, while the result is a reflection of a common, yet uncommon, Latter-day Saint pioneer."—Donald G. Godfrey
