Frontiers of Hope by Vachele Christensen Higbee, John Somers Higbee, Isaac Higbee, Elias Higbee

These intriguing true stories transport the reader back in time to the early history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elias, Isaac Jr., and John Somers Higbee were very prominent leaders. They all associated closely with Joseph Smith, and with Brigham Young.

Ride in the runaway stage with Elias Higbee and Joseph Smith to Washington D.C., where they seek redress for the Saints driven from Missouri. Stand firm with Isaac Higbee Jr. and Brigham Young as they deal with unhappy Indians. Sail stormy seas with John Somers Higbee to England where he serves as mission president. Watch helplessly as Elias Higbee's apostate sons plot, and assist in carrying out, the brutal murder of Joseph Smith.

Accompany them on their long journeys on their Frontiers Of Hope - from Missouri to Nauvoo, to the nation's capitol, and back to Nauvoo, and across the plains to Salt Lake City, and Provo, and to England. Enjoy some exciting stories about the history of Provo. For other books visit
