“Now you have the record in your own hands. But you are only a man. Therefore, you will have to be watchful and faithful to your trust, or you will be overpowered by wicked men who will plan and scheme and get them away from you. If you do not take heed continually, they will succeed” —Angel Moroni upon delivering the Gold Plates to Joseph Smith.
With the Angel Moroni’s warning still ringing in his ears, young Joseph Smith steps into the woods he knows are crawling with armed men, bent on stealing the gold plates from him. He retrieves them from their hiding place in a rotted, birch log, only to face attack after attack by the money-hungry thieves on his trail!
It is up to Joseph—and Joseph alone—to protect and preserve the sacred gold record. But how will he muster the fortitude and faith when the odds are stacked so deeply against him? Will the angel’s warning come to pass?
