really liked it

Wow. How can you say, "I really liked" this book. The subject is heavy, especially for LDS folks like me who have grown up with the explanation of "The Indians made them do it." Some accounts or quotes are difficult to accept because as admitted by the author, they are hearsay and impossible to prove. But while the church has time and again argued Young's innocence, I believe this book effectively demonstrates his complicity both before and after the murders. Now I need to take my kids on a field trip to Mountain Meadows, because the topic is all-encompassing for a study of Utah history.
