Orson Hyde was chosen as an original member of the Council of the Twelve in 1835, when the Mormon Church first organized this governing body. Orson's most well-known accomplishment was as a Mormon missionary to Jerusalem (1840-1842) to dedicate the land for the return of the Jews. Civil authorities in Jerusalem invited the development of a five-acre hillside garden, in honor of Orson Hyde, which was completed in 1979.Participating in the Mormon drama of crossing the plains in the U.S. several times and settling the West, Orson was a colonizing leader in western Iowa, also in what became western Nevada, and in central Utah. He was a major figure in Utah's Black Hawk Indian War (1865-1872).Using facts, details and personal experiences never before in print, Myrtle Hyde, the Hyde family genealogist, has used diaries, letters, notes, documents, reports, articles, speeches and letters to present a real-life depiction of Orson Hyde, apostle, teacher, missionary, orator, scriptorian, journalist, editor, lawyer, judge, statesman, colonizer, and administrator; also the husband of eight wives, the father of thirty-three children. Contains an extensive Index and Bibliography.

Excerpt from Speech of Elder Orson Hyde: Delivered Before the High Priests Quorum in Nauvoo, April 27th, 1845 Upon the Course and Conduct of Mr. Sidney Rigdon, and Upon the Merits of His Claims to the Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints The priesthood is the power by which all things are sustained, and it holds the keys of death and hell. It can bind on earth and it is bound in heaven. It can loose on earth and it is loosed in heaven. It can forgive sins on earth and they are for given in heaven. It can sit in judgment on earth and that judgment is sanctioned and recorded in heaven. Wherever you find a church, Mr. President, whose priesthood does not possess this power, know ye that that church is not the church of God according to the New Testament, neither according to the dic tates of the spirit of truth. N o doubt but that some of those who drove the Saints from Missouri, who robbed and murdered a portion of our brethren, either have, or will at some time, pray to God to have their souls converted, their sins forgiven, and to be prepared for a heavenly inheritance but they should be told, that unless they first get pardon of those whom they have offended, by repairing the wrongs they have done them, and conciliating their favour, that all their prayers and supplications are an abomination before God, and will only be accounted as sin upon their own heads, upon the heads of their children, and upon the heads of their childrens' children unto the fourth generation. The Saints hold the keys of these matters; and this arouses the contempt and indignation of the unbelievers, and they take occasion from these considerations to tantalize and offend us. Truly did Christ say that offences must come; but woe to them bywhom they come. Better that a mill-stone were hung about their neck and they be cast into the depths of the sea than to offend one of these little ones that believe in me: for as these hold the keys, they may turn them forever against those who offend them, and that refuse-to repent or make any satisfaction. In that case it were better for the offender if he had never been born. For whosoever sins the Saints retain, they are retained.

Like Uriah and his wife Bathsheba in the Old Testament, Orson Pratt, the bright, thirty-one-year-old member of the Mormon hierarchy, was forced to choose between his wife and his spiritual leader, Joseph Smith. The year was 1842, the place Nauvoo, Illinois. Pratt would forever after be associated with controversy -- a fly in the ointment in Brigham Young's view. His willingness to speak his mind put him at odds with Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, and Orson's own brother Parley. But his integrity and intellectualism kept him in the inner circles, even though Young demoted him in the Quorum of the Twelve. This action prevented his eventual succession as LDS church president. These three -- Smith, Young, and Pratt -- though they mingled like oil, air, and water, continue to hold more influence over Mormon thought than any subsequent church leader.
