[illustration] Inside front cover: Heber C. Kimball Home in Nauvoo, 1845, by Al Rounds. May not be copied. Zina Young wrote of this time in Nauvoo: "The Church is in prosperous circumstances for there appears to be the most union that has ever been. ... The temple prospers" (Diary, Mar. 10, 1845, Archives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; spelling standardized).

[illustration] Inside back cover: The McKay Farmhouse, Huntsville, Utah, by Cynthia M. McKay. May not be copied. David O. McKay (1873-1970), ninth President of the Church, was born and reared in this home in Huntsville, located in a picturesque valley in the mountains near Ogden, Utah. On this farm, young David learned to work hard as he helped with the crops and farm animals. The artist, who is the wife of David O. McKay's grandson Robert, featured President McKay's large horse Sonny Boy on the right.
