SALT LAKE CITY — Porter Rockwell is an enigma to many, even in some ways to John W. Rockwell and Jerry Borrowman, authors of "Stories from the Life of Porter Rockwell," published by Covenant Communications. Their book also spun-off a popular DVD documentary examination of Porter Rockwell's life featuring actor Richard Purdy as Porter.
John Rockwell and Borrowman recently sat down in the Heber C. Kimball home at This is the Place Heritage Park to talk about their impressions of the famous and infamous Mormon bodyguard and businessman whose long hair was a token of an abiding faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ and loyalty to Joseph Smith and Brigham Young.
