From the creators of the critically acclaimed television documentary series History of the Saints comes this richly illustrated companion book, a poignant chronicle of the journey of the early Saints as they charted a course from Nauvoo to the Salt Lake Valley. This epic depiction of one of the most notable exoduses in history details pivotal moments in the journey west, beginning with the martyrdom of Joseph Smith in June 1844 and culminating in the Saints contribution to westward expansion. The authors detail the successes and failures of the pioneers, whose vision of the future took them beyond the American West into Mexico, Canada, and Hawaii in their quest to establish Zion. History of the Saints: The Great Mormon Exodus and the Establishment of Zion masterfully depicts the trials and triumphs of early members of the Church through discussion by top scholars in LDS history, including William G. Hartley, Susan Easton Black, Sherman L. Fleek, Richard E. Bennett, Michael N. Landon, Ronald O. Barney, W. Randall Dixon, Ronald W. Walker, and Thomas G. Alexander. These experts present the latest in historical research alongside striking images that bring to life the people and places made famous and infamous by the exodus of the Mormon pioneers.
