Stories from the Life of Porter Rockwell is not a comprehensive biography, nor is it fiction. It is a collection of accounts about Porter Rockwell that provide insight into his character, his incredible physical stamina and skill, and his devotion to the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. While others of his time acted differently than he, his life was a legitimate and lawful response to the world in which he lived. These are the stories that his contemporaries found significant.

Couldn't put it down.

Porter is of legend status in L.D.S. history. I found the authors to have written a book that people of many ages can enjoy reading.

This book was a fast read, stories that have been written in other books. A great fan of Rockwell but this was disappointing, was hoping for new stories.
Good read, some errors

From my personal knowledge of church history, I noticed some inconsistencies with dates, etc. Some typos but minor. Wonderful insights into Rockwell's interesting life stories.
Could have been a lot better

The title is exciting. Good cover. But, this was the hardest book to get through. Lots of grammar mistakes. It read like the book was written in just a week or two. I would like to see the book rewritten by a professional author.
