The massacre at Mountain Meadows on September 11, 1857, was the
single most violent attack on a wagon train in the thirty-year
history of the Oregon and California trails. Yet it has been all
but forgotten. Will Bagley's Blood of the Prophets is an
award-winning, riveting account of the attack on the Baker-Fancher
wagon train by Mormons in the local militia and a few Paiute
Indians. Based on extensive investigation of the events surrounding
the murder of over 120 men, women, and children, and drawing from a
wealth of primary sources, Bagley explains how the murders
occurred, reveals the involvement of territorial governor Brigham
Young, and explores the subsequent suppression and distortion of
events related to the massacre by the Mormon Church and others.
