This is the story of an ocean journey made in biblical times by a group of people from the Old World to the New World We have an account of the journey written in the Book of Mormon a scripture used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints but unfortunately the account is short and largely devoid of detail on how a suitable ship was built how the journey was accomplished and the route they took This book is an attempt to fill in many of these gaps in the light of some of the remarkable discoveries that have made about ancient voyaging during the last century These discoveries clearly indicate that we have greatly underestimated the skill knowledge and courage of the ancient mariners and the length and complexities of their voyages As we discover more about the detailed history of the Ancient World we have come to realize that the journey we have examined in these pages may be one of many made by these intrepid mariners
