By John D. Lee
In 1857, a gaggle of pioneers from Arkansas heading for California have been ambushed via a bunch of local american citizens and Mormons. it really is predicted that just about one hundred forty women and men have been massacred. even though his position within the bloodbath used to be now not publicly recognized for many years after the assault, Mormon chief John D. Lee is assumed to be one of many masterminds at the back of the violence. during this autobiography, Lee discusses his existence sooner than and after the so-called Mountain Meadow bloodbath.
