A riveting look at an untold chapter of Western history, this book tells the story of Martha Hughes Cannon, the first woman elected to the state senate in Utah—in 1896. She was a polygamist wife, a practicing physician, and an astute and pioneering politician. Pioneer, Polygamist, Politician traces her life from her birth in Wales to her emigration to Utah with her family in 1861, her career as a physician, her marriage, her exile in England, and her subsequent return and her election to the Utah state senate. Cannon was a Democrat—and her husband was the Republican candidate she defeated in that historic election.
