If I could of rated it a"0" I would have. She takes truths established to back up her "research". In one paragraph she states how the topography has changed then uses that same item to back up her book. How did the Nephites maneuver a ship up the Mississippi River? Why travel all that way past land after land to finally disembark at Lake Erie? The winters are harsh. She explains that the reference to seas in The Book of Mormon were actually lakes. Joseph Smith gave as a pure translation thru the Holy Ghost. If the Lord wanted us to understand it to be lakes, He would have Joseph write lakes. So where is the eastern sea? Her explanation is the topography has changed. She uses it when it suits her purpose. I'd feed this book to goats, but it would make them sick. I thought I was safe buying from LDS book store. Apparently I was wrong.
