This book remains the definitive study of that dark day in the history of Utah when an emigrant wagon train crossing southern Utah was attacked by Indians and Mormons. Twenty years after the massacre John D. Lee, a Mormon and participant in the massacre, was executed by a firing squad and thus entered history as the scapegoat for a large group of men who had all been a party to the tragic event. - Library Journal
