Every Latter-day Saint needs to be better informed about the true facts of this disaster, in order to know better how to deal with them. I assure you that this volume will make instant global news. It will be our next “Mormon Bombshell.” Many other books have been published on this subject over the past few years. But this time it is the Church’s own version of what really happened and why. It will make big news — based on more than a decade of painstaking research from original sources, by three of the very finest LDS historians. See the details below.
