Not as in-depth as Allen's previous "Exploring the Lands of the Book of Mormon", it seems that book is required reading for this one.

This book was my trip to Central America, excellent photos of all the major Book of Mormon sites. The author gives a short description of each, tying it into scripture. It seemed to include all the discoveries of the last twenty years plus, of course, older discoveries.
