"The Field Is White" takes readers on a historic tour of England during the missionary service of Wilford Woodruff and other Mormon apostles in the Three Counties area (Worcestershire, Herefordshire, and Gloucestershire). Chief among the new converts were the United Brethren, who were seeking a restoration of ancient Christianity and who soon become ardent supporters and missionaries themselves. The authors of this book, Carol Wilkinson and Cynthia Doxey Green, have documented the stories and added delightful color photos and maps to introduce the people and places. Highly recommended!
