Book Details
Release Date: December 2014
Publisher: Deseret Book
Genre: Historical Fiction

Gerald N. Lund is a FANTASTIC storyteller!

And this book is appropriately named...for ONLY THE BRAVE could have lived through what these people had to live through.

It is 1884 and the Saints have been in the San Juan valley for four years.

Sent there by their leaders to fulfill these three missions:

*They were to become a buffer between the white man and the Indians.

*They were to be like a the shock absorbers on a wagon, which soften the blows for those riding in the wagon, or in this case, those in the other settlements.

*They were to be like a lightning rod, which draws down the fires of heaven upon itself so they do not consume others.

Life is definitely hard as they battle nature and Indians and rough outlaws and competing ranchers.

Church leaders have been called to assess the situation and other families have now been sent to buoy up these Saints.

You will read of true accounts of life in these harsh conditions.

You will also be introduced to Mitch Westland and his family as they try to follow the directive of the Prophet.

And you will learn of the Zimmers family and their strong-willed daughter, Edie.

These two families will unite with the others...in this valley... that will test them to their very most inner strength.

"Many settlers will try to conquer that rugged territory, but only the brave will prevail."

Fascinating details of the lives of these early settlers!
Amazing stories of what life was like for them!
Don't miss out on this one!
