|Tales from the Book of Mormon
with a Geographic Twist.
Where did the Book of Mormon take place? Fig. 1
My first Tale tells about the internal geographic evidence that
pinpoints a unique location for the Book of Mormon events.
What were the geographic localities involved in the war
with the Amlicites? Fig 2
This tale shows the route taken by the Amlicite armies during the
war attempting to establish Amlici as King in the land of Zarahemla
Why did King Limhi's search party get lost in the
wilderness? Fig 3
This tale describes the geography near the head of the river Sidon
and how the search party could easily have chosen the wrong river
which led them to the land among many waters next to the land of
desolation where they found the 24 gold plates.
How could the Nephite army reach the head of the
river Sidon before the lamanite army that destroyed
Ammonihah get there? Fig 4
This tale describes the geography, in particular the wilderness
area , which forced the lamanites to take a much longer route
along the seashore while the Nephites could travel safely by the
shorter route through the land of Zarahemla.
More Tales to come.
The purpose of this site is to take stories from the Book of Mormon
that may have been impacted by the geography and discuss them
in the context of the geography of Mesoamerica using 2 and 3
dimensional satellite maps of the area.
