Dave Wood, past vice-president of the National Book Critics Circle, writes: “My wishes were recently fulfilled with a new book, ‘Massacre at Mountain Meadows,’ by Ronald W. Walker, Richard E. Turley and Glen M. Leonard . . . It’s a shocking story, well-documented, neither an expose or a cover-up.”.
“A vivid, gripping narrative of one of the most notorious mass murders in all American history, and a model for how historians should do their work. This account of a long-controversial horror is scrupulously researched, enriched with contemporary illustrations, and informed by the lessons of more recent atrocities.”
— Daniel Walker Howe , Pulitzer Prize-winning author of What Hath God Wrought: The Transformation of America, 1815–1848
