Dave Wood's Book Report, Sept. 17, 2008
Two years ago, I watched the long PBS special on Mormonism. I was shocked to learn of the Mormons' massacre of 120 non-Mormon settlers who had moved into Utah in 1857. The reportage was just a small part of the PBS special and I longed to hear more.
My wishes were recently fulfilled with a new book, "Massacre at Mountain Meadows," by Ronald W. Walker, Richard E. Turley and Glen M. Leonard (Oxford University Press, $29.95).
