"Modern Perspectives on Nauvoo and the Mormons" reprints available

From BYU Religious Studies Center

The Brigham Young University Religious Studies Center recently reprinted a small number of copies of its book, “Modern Perspectives on Nauvoo and the Mormons.”Originally printed in 2003, this rare book is now available at the BYU Bookstore for $29.95.

In 2001, Larry E. Dahl and Don Norton supervised the interviewing of 26 long-term Nauvoo residents and compiled their conversations into the book “Modern Perspectives on Nauvoo and the Mormons.” This record of oral history was intended to preserve otherwise undocumented historical accounts.

The city of Nauvoo, Ill., was once a bustling city with thousands of citizens but is now a quiet, peaceful town of about 1,200 citizens. Many of the city’s long-term residents are descended from Nauvoo’s early settlers who are conversant about family stories and historical events, including the causes of conflict and violence that led to the exodus of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

A megafire induced over a century’s worth of erosion near Utah Lake — but there’s more to the story, say BYU scientists

October 22, 2021
In burned watersheds where the wildfire had consumed stabilizing vegetation and leaf litter, the rain had caused massive erosion. There was a 2,000-fold increase in sediment flux compared to unburned areas, creating a plume of ash and soil moving into Utah Lake that was visible from space.
