Title Tribute
Description TRIBUTE God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, had again spoken to Joseph Smith in the backwoods of New York State. Angels visited him. A new Prophet and Seer had been divinely commissioned and called. The gospel was restored in its fulness and purity after a long night of spiritual darkness. Then Joseph was gone - a martyr to the cause. Another leader interpreted the will of the Lord and with covered wagons and handcarts, through the streams and riv-ers, dirt and grime, and sometimes snow, they came to the Rocky Mountains. Again through the mighty Prophet Brigham Young, they responded to the direction of the Lord, and finger-like they fanned out into Utah, Idaho and Arizona to form colonies. Our own Sanpete County was one of them. The valleys welcomed them to peace and home. This period was one of hardship. But the challenges were matched by faith and works. Testimonies abound in the hearts of the descendants of those patriots of both God and country. Compilation and preservation of these testimonies became the goal of those who sponsor the printing of the SAGA OF THE SANPITCH. We dedicate this volume to a stateman, historian, a son of pure pioneer heritage and a great spiritual leader, who gave tireless effort and inspiration to this publication through the years. God bless the memory of our friend and brother who, by example and dedication, helped to link us solidly to the past, that we might be betler prepared to interpret the present and appraise our own future destiny. We salute you and assert our love for you, R. Clair Anderson. - Vernon L. Kunz
