Book Review Session: Massacre at Mountain Meadows

Book Review Session: Massacre at Mountain Meadows Just now arriving in bookstores, Massacre at Mountain Meadows (Oxford University Press) is the long-awaited book on the September 1857 tragedy written by Ronald W. Walker, Richard E. Turley and Glen M. Leonard, three Church-employed historians who enjoyed the full cooperation and resources of the LDS history department. Because it draws on documents not previously available to scholars and offers new angles on traditional sources, the book is being touted as the ‘most thoroughly researched account of the massacre ever written.’ Speaking about this important new book, Kathleen Flake says, ‘without doubt [it] will constitute the necessary starting point for all future [accounts of the massacre].’
