This book is a collection of photographs taken in the Sacred Grove in Palmyra, New York. The pictures are tied together by the story of Joseph Smith's first vision, as told in his own words in Joseph Smith History located in the Standard Works of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The pictures were taken during an early summer morning on a church history trip in 2009.
