Is The Book of Mormon the Great American Novel? Decades before Ishmael's ship embarked on its search for Moby Dick, before Huck Finn set out on his adventures along the Mississippi, a farm hand and child seer named Joseph Smith unearthed a long-buried book from a haunted hill in western New York State, a discovery that radically transformed his life and that marked the ambitious start of the American literary project. Using his prophetic gift, Joseph translated the mysterious book--which told of an epic hidden history of ancient America, a story about a family that fled biblical Jerusalem and took a boat to the New World--and published it under the title The Book of Mormon. The book caused an immediate sensation, sparking anger and violence, boycotts and jealousy, curiosity and wonder, and launched Joseph on a wild, decades-long adventure across the American West. Today, the Book of Mormon, one of the most widely circulating works of American literature, continues to cause controversy--which is why most of us know very little about the story it tells.
