    This is written in a dry, academic manner and I imagine that later books on this matter are more readable. But, I think that the author correctly got the story right and documented the cover up. The fact that she was also a member of the LDS shows a great deal of courage on her part to do the book and I am sure that she endured hostility from many people as a result.

    The Ultamate Book on 19th century Utah

    Dr. Brooks in her writings overcame stigmatism, dogma, and a fearful society out to hide the awful truth of a dark passage in Western History. As a young History student at my university, it was suggested we attend a lecture at the neighboring Jr. College given there by an emeritus professor. It is at this lecture, I listen and understood the passion and honesty brought out by Dr. Brooks. Her attention to a subject taboo in the local area was an evolving experience to all who attended this lecture.<BR/>The Mountain Meadow Massacre outside of the towns of Cedar City and St. George Utah has been denied and vilified by those who tried to keep it quiet. The Massacre is the collimation of "Buchannan¿s Blunder" also known as the "Mormon War". Dr. Brooks¿s insight and in-depth study has brought to light many factors that the participaten¿s tried to hide. Add to this the threat of an oncoming army, misunderstandings on several sides, then the questionable actions of several local leaders, leading to the execution of scapegoat John D. Lee. <BR/>Anyone who makes a study of this incident and NOT uses this work has made a huge mistake and cannot make an actual account of their writings on the matter
