In the twentieth century, Mormonism grew from an obscure regional curiosity to one of America's five largest religions. Sons of Bear Lake is a look at this religious culture from the inside, exploring the different ways Latter-day Saints practice their beliefs and worship in their families and communities.
Set in the Bear Lake Valley, amid the stunning scenery and lively folklore of the post-pioneer generation, three sons seek to find their way to adulthood. Each young man develops a different outlook on life, and as they grow, their faithfulness-and rebellion-give insight into their unique cultural upbringing. Readers may find themselves portrayed in one of these amazing character studies. [publisher blurb]
