As Mormon edited the Book of Mormon, he must have had a map in his mind of the places and physical features that were the setting for the events described in that book. Mormon's Map attempts to reconstruct that mental map by using information from the text. This volume sheds new light on the geography of the Book of Mormon and increases our understanding of the book and its characters.
