PROVO, UTAH -- Such questions as exactly where, according to LDS Church belief, did Moroni appear to the Prophet Joseph Smith the first time, where is Adam's altar, and where did the original pioneers of 1847 camp when they came to the Salt Lake Valley, have been answered in a new series of books called "Sacred Places," now being published by Bookcraft.

The "monumental" series, researched by LaMar C. Berrett, professor emeritus of LDS Church History and Doctrine at BYU, and seven other BYU religion professors, were carefully researched and contain footnotes and complete bibliographical references.

The six volumes are subtitled, "A Comprehensive Guide to Early LDS Historical Sites." The first volume, recently released, focuses on significant LDS sites in New England and Canada, while the second, due out in the fall, will deal with sacred places and events in New York and Pennsylvania.

The books will provide many new and important facts, and will contain 128 new accurate and scaled maps to help people locate sites. In addition, 946 photographs, will help readers visualize places and events in both bygone and modern times.
