A non-Mormon, he is plunged into the rural frontier Mormon culture less than a generation away from the first pioneers that settled the area. Acceptance, intolerance, sin and righteousness all impact young Jonathon, as do the unforgiving elements on this harsh red sandstone frontier. Jonathons spiritual and physical struggles in this environment are further complicated in that several young Mormon women take a fancy to the law student turned teacher less than a decade after polygamy was abandoned. Based on actual incidents, events and areas in rural frontier southern Utah, Await the Dawn on a Mormon Frontier, recounts the story of settlers struggling to live and prosper in a beautiful but inhospitable land.
