After this groundbreaking, deeply moving series about black LDS pioneers was first published, modern-day descendants came forward with further information and more detailed history. In this new edition, the authors have corrected some errors and dramatized the experience of additional black pioneers.
This book contextualizes the history of the Mormon migration with other events in American and particularly African American history. Few are aware that several black Mormon converts played important parts in the beginnings of Civil Rights issues from 1930 onward. Any listeners who want to broaden their understanding of African American history in the days from the American Revolution until just before the Civil War will find this book unique and full of information unavailable elsewhere. The trilogy of books (this is the first of three) contain exhaustive documentation, but the authors have been careful to rely not only events but on dialogue (as far as possible) to maintain accuracy. Though they have taken fictional leaps where no historical information was available, they have stayed as close to the facts as possible.
