bookshelves: history
Recommended for: hx of Morman faith
Read in November, 2007

Krakauer traces the history of a murder in a Morman family that took place in I think the 1980's. As he takes us through the events he relates the entire history of the Morman faith, its roots, its development, its controversies, etc. The LDS have condemmed this book, so Krakauer replies to their criticisms.
