Page xii in the preface of Massacre at Mountain Meadows explains that this book is the first of two volumes dealing with the tragedy: “The collection of material for our book became an embarrassment of riches. We concluded, reluctantly, that too much information existed for a single book. Besides, two narrative themes emerged. One dealt with the story of the massacre and the other with is aftermath—one with crime and the other with punishment. This first volume tells only the first half of the story, leaving the second half to another day.”
Richard E. Turley Jr. has now signed a contract with Oxford University Press to publish the second volume, tentatively titled After the Massacre.
