This makes more sense than being located in some third world country in Central America. That is not to say that some other great civilization took root there, but I don't think it was the people of the Book of Mormon. I believe it shows that the Hopewell Indians are the logical descendants of these people, who were also known as the Mound Builders. Because of the fortifications they threw up mounds of dirt around their cities and villages for a defense. It talks about it in the Book of Mormon that they throw up dirt mounds around the cities.
The author also did research into ancient lakes that would fit the area, along with the Great Lakes that conform to the seas on the east and west . The Book of Mormon talks about whirlwinds (tornadoes) which there is no such thing in Central America, but there are many in the heartland of the US. It talks about great roaming beasts which sounds more like the buffalo herds that roamed before the white man nearly wiped them out. The Jaradites talk about elephants. There were no elephants in Central America, but there were mastadons and woolly mammoths in North America as well as horses. Of course, they eventually died off. And the fact that there is to be a New Zion built in the heartland of the US, it makes sense that this land was blessed to be the land of the free. A choice land above all others.
If knowing where the Book Of Mormon stories actually occured is important to you, this is a good book to read.
She does an excellent job of giving her reasons why she believes the Book of Mormon did not occur in South America as is commonly believed by many in the LDS Church.
The book has opened up the study of the Book of Mormon tremendously. I now understand where they are talking about in the Book of Mormon.
