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.

The author 'suggests' that each place is the named place in the Book of Mormon and gives reasons why. Very interesting.

I really liked this book. It gave me a whole need and exciting perspective when reading the Book of Mormon. I look forward to reading it again, but knowing where the various people migrated to and from.
