Massacre at Mountain Meadows deserves to be the standard account of the massacre for both LDS and non-LDS researchers and readers, updating Juanita Brooks’s fine but now outdated The Mountain Meadows Massacre . . . and surpassing other recent treatments . . . Walker, Turley, and Leonard have provided a tightly written, riveting narrative . . . While its prose is commendable, the real quality of the book rests upon the impressiveness of its research and the soundness of its analysis.”
