First published in Kanesville, Iowa, in 1849, The Frontier Guardian was used by church leaders to help Mormons there focus on the ultimate westward goal. Yet the newspaper was much more than an ecclesiastical forum. Local, national, and international news was included along with information about the westward trek. The Frontier Guardian is a window into this way-station for westward emigration, illuminating the religious, social, economic, and political aspects of this frontier community.

Book includes a searchable DVD of all issues of all of the newspspers, complete with scholarly annotations.
