In 1974, Spencer W. Kimball called for Latter-day Saints to “lengthen our stride.” When he delivered this landmark address, he encouraged all Latter-day Saints to think bigger, broader, and bolder about the ongoing globalization of the Church.

The still largely Intermountain West Church that President Kimball began to lead in 1974 looked very different from the Church four decades later.

This book is a collection of colorful stories of a group of Mormon pioneers and their families who left their marks on their communities, Church, and family history. It begins two hundred years ago, with Joseph Godfrey and later Charles Ora Card.

He and his best friend, George Coleman, crossed the plains on their way to Utah and drew lots to see who would join the Mormon Battalion and who would remain taking care of their families.

“What bravery! They died with their boots on!” remarked one of the Zapatista executioners about the surreal way Rafael Monroy and Vicente Morales had stood to receive the fusillade of bullets that pierced their bodies.
