Moroni Smith In the Land of Zarahemla

Moroni Smith In the Land of Zarahemla is teen action and adventure writing at its best—a book you can’t put down until the final page! Dr. L. DeLon Ardis, BYU professor of archaeology, is on a church expedition to try to find the Lost City of Zarahemla. As Zarahemla’s exact location is being radioed to church headquarters, communication is interrupted. Church leaders suspect foul play. Moroni Smith, Orrin Porter Rockwell VII and Gadget Gunderson, of the church special projects division, are sent out. Shot down as they approach the area, the trio push through the jungle and find the city still intact, with descendants of the Nephites struggling for their freedom. As they fight to protect the city and its people from the evil Reverend Maximus Deil, leader of the anti-Mormon group The Unity, they are repeatedly confronted with ominous challenges. They fight their way out of massive jungle fires, escape from dark dungeon traps, and escape from death by fire at the stake. You’ll cheer Moroni in his fierce fight to preserve Zarahemla; his attraction to Gadget, his beautiful and proficient electronics expert; and his deep friendship and love for his sidekick, Port. Compared to Moroni Smith, Indiana Jones is only a second stringer. The challenges come fast and furious in this exciting book, and every chapter is a “cliff-hanger.”
