I read this bad boy quite randomly after finishing Under the Banner of Heaven. Halfway into Around the World, there's a multi-page examination of the Mormon religion from when the book was written in 1873 - extremely fascinating to learn all about Mormonism then get Jules Verne's 1873 interpretation of the pyramid sche... religion.

The home is in Seattle and more specifically, is located on Hunts Point on Lake Washington. Hunts... Continue Reading →
This is going to be short and sweet. If you have an interest in organized religion, particularly Mormonism, and you enjoyed Into the Wild and Into Thin Air, you'll love this book.
