This historical documentary details the history of St. George and surrounding settlements from their founding through the construction of the St. George temple. Some other areas of emphasis are the Paiute Indians, the growth of cotton and silk, and construction of the St. George tabernacle.
Summary from the video cover:
"In 1861, Brigham Young called 309 families to settle the St. George area and begin a cotton industry in Utah's Dixie.
"Those who answered his call had no idea of the hardships that awaited them. Intense heat, drought, flash floods and disease tested their determination and faith.
"From the call of Jacob Hamblin to teach the Indians of the area, through the struggle to establish a cotton crop, build the tabernacle, opera house, court house and the great challenge of constructing the St. George Temple on swampland, you will be astonished and moved by the story of those who built 'A Temple Dressed in White.'
"Like Dennis Lyman's historical video 'History at Temple Hill, Manti,' depicting the settling of Sanpete County and the building of the Manti Temple, he has researched many documents and interviewed descendants of the early settlers and taken hundreds of pictures to bring the story of St. George and the building of that temple vividly to life."
Done in the traditional style of modern historical documentaries, this is an excellent resource on the history of Utah's Dixie, except for its failure to mention the Mountain Meadows Massacre in any way. The DVD has no chapters selection or special features.
The subtitle appears on the DVD cover but not the film itself.
