Wraps in white rear cover/tan spine and front cover w/William Keith artwork. The classic treatment of a still-controversial part of Mormon and Western History. "In September, 1857, one of the worst atrocities in the history of the westward movement occurred when the Fancher Company was massacred with the exception of approximately eighteen small children. This was not simply another Indian attack. The Mormon settlers of Southern Utah actively participated . . . Mrs. Brooks, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, has done the most definitive study of the massacre and has been completely objective throughout" - Journal of the West. 318 pages.
