This is the fifth book in the Faith-Promoting series, and quite possibly the most popular of all 17 books in the series. The full original title is Jacob Hamblin: A Narrative of His Personal Experience as a Frontiersman, Missionary to the Indians, and Explorer: Disclosing Interpositions of Providence, Severe Privations, Perilous Situations and Remarkable Escapes.
This first-person narrative told is by Jacob Hamblin and tells of his turning to God after a miraculous healing, conversion to the Church, joining the Saints in Nauvoo, the succession crisis after the death of Joseph Smith, the journey across the plains to the Salt Lake Valley, his missions to the Native Americans, and the settlement of Southern Utah. It is one of the key source documents for many of these important events in Church history, and has become one of the most popular classics in the LDS cannon.
Led by a keen awareness to spiritual promptings and a strong love for Native Americans, Jacob Hamblin served as a mission president, Church arbitrator, and a scout exploring through Utah, Nevada, and Arizona territories. This action-packed account of a frontier hero is an excellent addition to any library.
