Product Description

Described as "the most traveled man in the Church," Andrew Jenson was a lifelong globetrotter since his emigration as a young boy from Denmark to Utah in 1866. Jenson's interest in the whereabouts of ancient Nephite and Lamanite ruins propelled him to visit remote areas of Latin America, and he returned with a powerful impression that the latter-day gospel should be spread south, beyond the borders of Mexico. Jenson's letters help reader better understand events and experiences that may have led to the reopening of the South American Mission in 1925. This book covers this important period in both Jenson's life and Church history, which has rarely been told and is virtually unknown by most Mormon historians.
