From the text- "Everyone knows something about the Mormon struggle for a place on the American frontier, and the ultimate settlement in the mountain valleys of Utah in 1847. But on the underside of the world at the same time there was being enacted on volcanic islands and coral reefed atolls of the South Seas another part of the Mormon epic, an epic itself, heroic and enduring, unheralded and unsung, of ardent missionaries dedicated to a prophetic religion's inherent commitment to the idea of universal conversion."
