Thanks for the research. I'm looking forward to the next articles. The map is intriguing.

In 2005 my wife and I attended Education Week at BYU and attended a screening of a video produced by Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studied (FARMS) tracing Lehi's Journey. It is entitled "Journey of Faith". We enjoyed it so much we purchased a dvd at BYU Bookstore. We still feel it was a most worthwhile purchase. I would think you could still get it.

Warren's work is a remarkable example of what one individual can do alone. But now I think this is the time to add combined resources to support the much further work and discovery that is needed to more fully understand the choice spots in the Arabian Peninsula that appear relevant to the Book of Mormon. More treasures remain to be discovered.

Dr.Richard Wellington and George Potter did a similar trek and wrote a book: "Lehi in the Wilderness: 81 New Documented Evidences That the Book of Mormon Is a True History." I must say that I am surprised that Warren Aston did not refer to that exhaustive study. The book was published in 2003 after a six-year study and travels on trails in Saudi Arabia that were very similar.

This is wonderful! You've really pin pointed all the relevant details to finding Bountiful. I can't wait for the next installment.

well done article except for the very end. It's more likely that Nephi and crew sailed west around Africa and across the Atlantic. First of all check out where Moroni and Comoros are so they likely put in for a pit-stop there. By some accounts that voyage could have taken some 70+ days whereas the other route takes 2 years, which is unlikely (this was nearly accidentally proven by a crew sailing a Phonetician ship counter-clockwise around Africa. They came within about 2 weeks of the Americas before managing to turn it back to the east!).

Very well written. I am looking forward to the rest of the story. I just love it when stories from the Book of Mormon can be validated.
