By contemporary standards, this book is a documentary, not a history. It is an affectionate compilation of stories related to the construction (and reconstruction) of the beautiful Mormon Temple that remains the visual and cultural axis of Cache Valley.

If you live in Cache Valley, this book provides fascinating insights into the lifestyles, values, and perspectives of the 2nd generation. It will reinforce your appreciation for their sacrifices.

I love the stories of the Logan Temple. It has been a part of my life. My dad and other relatives told us stories about this temple and its first President: Marriner Wood Merrill, my 2nd great grandfather. There are some miraculous happenings but such is the work of the Lord. I was born near the temple but grew up in Roy. I have since returned to be sealed there to my wife Kristy. We do temple ordinances there for my ancestors. It is still a beautiful and unique building.

I loved the inside stories of the events and people connected to the building of the this temple. I had heard the story of the legions of satan appearing on the temple grounds and being commanded to leave, but to read the actual account from the temple president was chilling. Cache valley has always held a special place in my heart.

We were close friends of the son of Nolan Olsen the author of this book. We heard him speak in a fireside about some of the events that transpired. I knew I had to have this book and have read it several times over the years. Wonderful uplifting historical accounts of the history of the building of the temple and the people who were in Logan and were blessed by the temple in their midst.

Enjoyed all the stories about the beautiful Logan Temple. Although the Salt Lake Temple is still my favorite temple, I have developed a love for the Logan Temple and appreciate all the sacrifices people made in the late 1800s to build it.

Very interesting and uplifting. This is a history of the building, re-building and operations of the Logan Temple. Lots of stories are also included that have been passed down over the years, many spiritual, some humorous but all very inspiring.

Really loved it. I have to say I kind of skimmed the first half of it because it described where they got the mortar, wood, stones, etc... and I just wanted to read some of the neat stories in it. Really good!
I liked this book. It gave a flavor of what it was like to live in Cash Valley. The spiritual stories were fun to read. My Grandmother who was daughter to one of the Presidents told me many more stories. I loved them all.

I read through this today and found a few ancestors that had contributed to the building of the Temple in many ways.
