For the LDS audience this is an interesting read. I don't really agree with the path that they think Lehi followed or a lot of their reasoning regarding the journey being secret or not (if the Lord wanted them to travel in secret, it would be so). However, they give some awesome corollary history in chapter 2 and their description of the land that would have been traversed (with some great pictures) makes this worth the purchase. There is a really good response to this written by Jeffrey R. Chadwick called "The Wrong Place for Lehi's Trail and the Valley of Lemuel" which also has a full dose of speculation.

Even if they have the wrong trail, I love the description of where they claim "Bountiful" to be and the primer in ship building is also fascinating. Once again, the ship building is written as if they had no divine guidance, so I don't fully agree with their reasoning but it is well-thought out. Over-all I recommend this one.

My wife and I lived in Saudi Arabia for almost 8 years and during the time of the first explorations documented in this beautiful little book. We personally participated in much of that early exploration, watching with wonder as it unfolded before our very eyes. It could not have been more amazing. Let me state that I did not participate in the writing of this book other than the fact that I read with interest the early manuscripts that were finally distilled into this interesting publication. I stood side by side with the authors and took many of the exact same photographs as are published in the book. Readers of the book will find us referenced in its pages. Being sailors ourselves we helped formulate the paradigm that resulted in the discovery of a harbor fitting the description and needs dictated by the Book of Mormon. We visited most of the sites many times during our sojourn in the desert.

As indicated in some of the reviews, one reading the Book of Mormon should approach it as a book of the revealed word of God and thus approach it in a spiritual frame of mind and apply spiritual "proof" to seek its authenticity, as it directs in it own pages. No amount of physical evidence would either prove or disprove it as such. The same would apply to the Holy Bible which one could also tear apart based upon statements made its pages which could be physically disproved and of course seriously challenged. It of course is also a book of divine revelation and is taken as a spiritual guide to our moral existence to which we apply for spiritual truth, something difficult to distil in the laboratory. Its authenticity is also determined by spiritual confirmation.

George Potter and Richard Wellington have provided Latter-day Saints with a great tool for understanding 1 Nephi in the Book of Mormon. While they are not scholars, their vivid report of personal explorations combined with library research helps illuminate the world Lehi and his family traveled through. Though some of their ideas maybe wrong, there is no question that the reader will gain a better understanding of Lehi's desert journey

Potter and Wellington have found what is the best candidate for the Valley of Lemuel (and River of Laman) to date, and I personally favor their candidates for Shazer and the Place of the Broken Bow as well. Meanwhile, they do provide an interesting candidate for Bountiful, though I favor the location identified by Warren P. Aston. Despite that, though, they do make an interesting case, and no one interested in identifying Bountiful should overlook Potter et al.'s choice of Khor Rori, nor should any conclusions be reached on the matter without carefully considering their case as made in this book and elsewhere.

Despite disagreeing with them on some conclusions regarding "maritime requirements," Potter and Wellington offer some literally groundbreaking work on ship-building and sailing and navigation as it relates to Nephi's building and sailing a ship (a topic Potter expands on with two new co-authors in Voyages of the Book of Mormon).

It should also be pointed out that their discussion of Nahom is somewhat muddled, inferring that there are many places with the name "Nahom" in Arabia. Warren P.

As a twenty-first century resident, I had very little understanding of the Arabic culture and the travel requirements necessary to travel from Jerusalem through southwestern Arabia in 600BC. It was enlightening to discover possible answers to the question,' Why did it take Lehi and family eight years to travel such a relatively short distance?. I throughly enjoyed this book and have already recommended this book to my friends and have given copies to others interested in the travels of Lehi and his family. Geographic photos,scripture references are included.
