Of course, the stories about starvation are the exception, said Utah author and food historian Brock Cheney. Because of their tragic nature, “a lot of our stories about the pioneers talk about the hardships,” said the author of “Plain but Wholesome: Foodways of the Mormon Pioneers.” “But once they were settle...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Similar surveys confirm Madison’s place near the midpoint, at neither the top nor the bottom of our perceptions of presidential effectiveness and success.
