Brand new! ; Hallowed Ground, Sacred Journeys: Salt Lake City, Ensign to the Nations transports readers back to nineteenth-century Salt Lake City by painting a picture of the city during the pioneer era, contrasting those bygone scenes with scenes of today. What should visitors see? Where should they go? Hallowed Ground, Sacred Journeys identifies many key sites that remain relatively unknown to those who live in, work in, or visit Salt Lake City. Visitors are struck by the beauty of the downtown area with its wide streets, yet nothing quite captures the magnificent sacrifice of those early pioneers as does the majestic Salt Lake Temple, which took forty years to make. It sits on Temple Square, ten acres of beautifully manicured grounds, and is the best recognized symbol of Salt Lake City. This is also the heart of the worldwide Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). Millions of visitors from every continent pass through these gates each year, ranking Temple Square in the upper echelon of international tourist attractions. Hallowed Ground, Sacred Journeys also highlights many significant and fascinating pioneer sites beyond Temple Square nestled in downtown Salt Lake City, combining recent images with historical photographs from pioneer times. ; 6" x 9"
