Overview

Originally published in 1915, The Rainbow Trail is the sequel to Riders of the Purple Sage (also a Bison Book). At the end of that famous novel, a huge boulder had rolled down to shut off the entrance to Surprise Valley, leaving Lassiter, Jane Withersteen, and little Fay Larkin to a singular fate. Twenty years later a lanky Illinois preacher named John Shefford, disillusioned with the narrow-mindedness of his congregation, appears in Arizona. At a "sealed-wife" village, where Mormons hide the practice of polygamy from the federal government, he picks up the trail of the grown-up Fay. Thus begins an exciting story of captivity, treachery, and last-minute escape.

I didn't read very far. This book was scanned in and it didn't pick up all the words. This is very annoying to try to read. I am not going to continue with it.

Zane fully develops his characters and their surroundings to pull you into the story! This story is action packed with emotional struggles.

Unfortunately, Anonymous, history tells us otherwise...Mormons did kill strangers. In 1857, 120 California-bound pioneers were slaughtered by Mormon militia and their Native American allies. No one knows for sure but it is believed that it was due to hysteria over Federal interference. The Mountain Meadows Massacre took place 230 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. Look it up. Wikipedia (among others) has a good article on the subject.

So, Mormons kill strangers? Be real!
