Christ in Ancient America by Dr. Milton R. Hunter of the First Council of the Seventy is a book of tremendous interest and value for those who would know firsthand the traditions and folkways of the early inhabitants of North, Central, and South America as well as know the truth contained in the Book of Mormon concerning these peoples.
Before the invasion of Israel in 600 B.C., a Hebrew family was warned by God to leave Jerusalem. They sailed to the Americas and built one of the greatest civilizations ever known. This is their story as recorded over 1,000 years and their prophecies for America and the Jews. "Behold, we have written this record according to our knowledge, in the characters which are called among us the reformed Egyptian, being handed down and altered by us, according to our manner of speech. And if our plates had been sufficiently large we should have written in Hebrew; but the Hebrew has been altered by us also; and if we could have written in Hebrew, behold, there would be no imperfection in our record." Book 13:4:73
