Product Description

Product Description

Angry mobs had forced Brigham Young and his fellow Mormons out of Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois. As leader of the Mormon Church, Young needed a safe place for his followers to live and worship freely. So with more than 5,000 Mormon settlers, Young crossed prairies, climbed mountains, and overcame hardship to reach his Promised Land—an unsettled region near the Great Salt Lake of Utah. Sometimes called the "American Moses," authors William R. Sanford and Carl R. Green explore the amazing life of this great pioneer.

4.0 out of 5 stars An opportunity not missed 29 July 2012
Format:Library Binding|Verified Purchase
Well when I saw this book listed prior to publication I decided to order it. There was no image available but it sounded a worthy read. The publication date was brought forward twice, from October to September then from September to July. Good news!!! So it arrived here in Scotland on Friday 27th July and I collected it yesterday evening. I opened the package and found that it is a very slim children's book! Because there was no product photo or description I ordered based purely on the title. Well I decided not to let the opportunity pass and I am reading and enjoying the book even although it is intended for minors. It tells a true story of courage and perseverance and faith so I would not let an opportunity like that be ignored. If you have children of say younger than 12 then this is a good book for them and whether or not your are a Latter-Day Saint or not it is still a great story and a great example for children to learn about. But for any adults out there looking for a book about Brigham Young, this is a CHILDREN'S BOOK. If you want an book aimed at adults only then do not buy this one. Not only am I enjoying the book however, I also got a laugh when I opened the package up!
