9 out of 10

I bought this book from the Barnes & Noble at Union Square during a recent trip to New York.

Under the Banner of Heaven is a fascinating look at the Mormon religion and particularly the (sometimes violent) and polygymist fundamentalist sects. I have been wanting to read a book that examines "Mormonism for the layman" ever since I went to Salt Lake City about 4 years ago... this was a great to read and I am inspired to read more by Krakauer.

I will release this book into the wild. I hope whoever finds this book enjoys it - welcome to Bookcrossing! Please make a journal entry to let me (and others) discover its fate once it leaves our hands... Thanks so much. Read and Release!!
