Great history of the Mountain Meadows Massacre

The title is "Massacre at Mountain Meadows" (duh), and there are three authors: Ronald W. Walker, Richard E. Turley, Jr., and Glen M. Leonard.

It uses some new methods to look at the psychological and emotional justifications by the perpetrators in the run-up to the tragedy.

It's very well written. I'm a little over half way through, and I'm loving it (in a morbid, educational sort of way ).
