Mary Nash Adam’s Journey to Zion

See the source image

What made Mary Nash Adam’s journey to the Salt Lake Valley different from most other pioneers?
a.                   She wasn’t a member
b.                  She had one leg
c.                   She was blind
d.                  She was lost and the natives brought her to the Valley
Yesterday’s answer:
B   Punctuated it
A non-Mormon played an essential role in how we read the Book of Moron today. The printer’s manuscript of the Book of Mormon was not punctuated. Non-Mormon typesetter John H. Gilbert recalled later in his life that he punctuated most of the Book of Mormon, at times interpreting the tricky wording of the text. Gilbert’s punctuation still influences the punctuation found in the current English edition of the Book of Mormon.
