In January I wrote about the book Saints at Devil’s Gate: Landscapes along the Mormon Trail. The book has 52 beautiful landscape paintings illustrating the trail of the Mormon pioneers with quotations from the pioneers who made the journey. The paintings and quotes together help you understand the pioneer story through their eyes.
The Church Historian’s Press has now made the quotations from the book available online free of charge to further the reach of the book. Download the quotes at churchhistorianspress.org.
This free booklet of quotes may be helpful in your personal study of the pioneers or to prepare for a stake pioneer trek this summer. (If your stake is planning a pioneer handcart trek, be sure to read the Church’s safety guidelines.)
