Title Ezra Clark, jacket text back
Description uries for all of them. His daughter declares that "Successful as Brother Clark was in business and as a missionary and farmer, his greatest suc- cess was in keeping the love of his family. This quality of his character accounted for the har- mony among his children and wives. His two families lived just across the street from each other. Every child found delight in pleasing him. Everyone tried to anticipate his every wish. . . . It can be truthfully said by children of both families that thev never heard their mothers disagree." Such love and harmony is to be envied. Annie Clark Tanner wrote this biography of her father out of the great love she had for him, however, she wanted to "tell it like it was," without concern for approval or disapproval. The reader will be impressed that Ezra T. Clark was a person of considerable quality. He was tested and he won out, particularly in that area where success is so difficult to achieve, in home life. ANNIE CLARK TANNER was born September 24, 1864, in Farming-ton, Utah. She was the oldest child of Ezra Thompson and Susan Leg- gett Clark, the second wife of Ezra Clark. In 1931 Annie Tanner wrote this biography of her father, and in 1941, the last year of her life, she wrote her autobiography, A Mormon Mother. Her writing has been classed as "one of the monuments of Mormon literature" by Dale L. Morgan, noted historian.
