This handy travel book begins a six-volume series of guide books to early Latter-day Saint historic sites. Under the general editorship of BYU professor emeritus of Church history and doctrine Lamar C. Berrett, the intent of the Sacred Places series is to provide a tool for those who wish to visit the sites where the seminal events of the Restoration took place. “Sacred Places endeavors to bring the history and geography of the early period of the Church to life” and to “function as a resource for academic historians and amateur Church history enthusiasts alike.”
Volume one covers historic sites in all six New England states and eastern Canada including Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic provinces. Three of the authors are professors of Church history and doctrine at BYU, and all have researched and written extensively on nineteenth-century Mormon history.
