"... A gripping examination that raises new questions while reviewing old ones... The Gunnison massacre now assumes a new significance... By candidly exploring things like blood atonement and the defensive atmosphere cultivated by Mormon apocalyptic belief, the reader is led to see how conflicts were nearly inevitable.. [The book is] compelling and conceptually persuasive... I am immensely impressed."
