W. Cleon Skousen, the second of nine children, was born in Raymond, Alberta, Canada, in 1913. He moved to California with his parents at the age of ten.

He began a careful study of the scriptures at the age of 17 when he was called on a mission to England, and had a well-known scriptural scholar, Dr. John A. Widtsoe, as his first mentor.

He subsequently graduated from George Washington University with a Juris Doctorate degree. After law school, he spent sixteen years with the FBI, four years as chief of police in Salt Lake City, and then served for ten years as a full professor at Brigham Young University in the Department of Religion.

He has written more than a dozen books on scriptural subjects and considerably more on various secular themes.

This book goes into great detail about the first 2 thousand years of the earths temporal existance. I just couldn't put the book down! It gives maps and explanations of everything. One of the best books I have ever read hands down.
