    In UNDER THE BANNER OF HEAVEN, John Krakauer shifts his focus from extremes of physical adventure to extremes of religious belief within our own borders. At the core of his book is an appalling double murder committed by a pair of brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they were commanded to kill by God. Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this "divinely inspired" crime, Krakauer constructs a multi-layered, bone-chilling narrative of polygamy, savage violence, and unyielding faith. Weaving the story of ... Show more

Under the Banner of Heaven

by mildred w on Jul 13, 2012

Under the Banner of Heaven is an excellent book; easy to read; a real page turner. It is written by a journalist and covers major stories in the history of the Mormon church. More

Shockingly informative

by Valliman on Jan 28, 2010

Don't read this book if you're looking for an objective view of Mormonism, but if you wish to learn about the extremist, fundamentalist branch, denounced by the mainstream, a group known as the FLDS, and their horrendous practice of polygamous marraiges to very underage girls, it's certainly an eye ...

Great book

by Slschff on Apr 24, 2008

This is an incisive look into the fundalmentalist mormon culture. I assume it was used to a great extent by HBO in the making of its series Big Love. Anyone wanting a better understanding of what is going on in El Dorado Texas should read it. More

A Real Thriller

by Johnny2read on Jun 24, 2007

John Krakauer is, I think, one of the very best storytellers of our time! In this book, he takes history and factual current events, and turns them into a spine-tingling thriller. He is concise, with an intelligent and interest-holding way with words, and brings the reader into the very heart of the ... More

Powerful as the 48 hour mystery TV series!

by FuriousStyles on Jun 10, 2007

I was somewhat reserved in choosing to read this book at first, but at the time there was so much news going on (being televised) about Mormon Fundementalism and polygamy that I had to grab it. By covering a savage murder orchestrated by two brothers along with intertwining the profound yet evolving ... More
