Item description for The Great Mormon Conspiracy by Alta G. Lyon...
Presented as a dialogue between Grandmother and Granddaughter, Mormon history and its beliefs unfold as never before. Grandmother, convinced of the legitimacy of Joseph Smith, discloses to an inquisitive teen the betrayal and deceit she has uncovered in a forty-year quest for the truth. What unfolds is a complex drama that transformed Joseph Smith's focus on the eternal into a gospel fixated on the flesh. A transformation paved on a trail of blood that would necessitate the eventual murdering of Joseph Smith and other family members at the hands of the Danite's disguised as a mob. A trail that would climax thousands of miles away in a desert where the leader of this deceit, Brigham Young, would bring the United States Government down upon the church by ordering the slaughter of a wealthy wagon train.

Secrets Exposed, the Cleansing of the Lord's House Jul 18, 2008
The truth needs to come forth. Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball were elite Satanic Masons (God is truth and full disclosure) who infiltrated the early church after Masons in the 1800s were persecuted when their secret acts, such as murder, were exposed (murder of Captain Morgan after writing expose on Masons). Joseph Smith listened to the "learned men"/enemies of God and fell as warned in D&C 3:1-11. He took the priesthood away from blacks and women, justified polygamy which the Book of Mormon states is an "abomination", and got into Satanic Masonic rituals and secret blood oaths. Seven good years, seven bad years, type and shadow. This book connects some of the dots of what really happened historically. We need more people telling the truth and Alta Lyon has done a great job of bringing forth what really went on behind the scenes. I would recommend this book to everyone.
It's Not That I Don't Believe It May 5, 2007
Although theorists often have good ideas, they sometimes lack the wherewithal to develop their theory. This is the case with this book. I went into the book ready to give my suspicions of Brigham Young birth, but completing this book didn't do it. "The defense is leading the witness" is what comes to my mind when thinking of a review. All you get is an author leading the reader into what she wants you to believe. I am sad. I wanted more from this book. I thought, here is a chance for a book to be different when confronting mormon history, and she blotches it. Everything she references requires you to research it yourself to get the correct context, and find the real meaning. She leaves things out, and she speaks in half-truths and exaggerations. Everything she does NOT reference needs to be. If they aren't her own ideas, then reference them; she doesn't do that. What ARE her own ideas, she still needs endnotes for. Explanations of where she is going and why is only professional. What do you expect the average reader to do with your information? Either read it and not form an opinion, or read it and form an opinion under false pretenses. You thus must become an above average reader and devote some time into independent research to find out how on earth the author comes to these conclusions. Whether she does or not, I suppose is up to the individual reader, yet I find she 'jumps' to conclusions, instead of bridging some gaps. What makes me saddest is the light she paints Joseph Smith in. I have read my share of history on Joe, and this book makes him quite stupid. The guy not only lacks in a mental and judgmental capacity, but falls quite short of a Prophet of any kind. The author claims devotion to a man that she paints as just a man who is so naive and such a 'space-case' that I beg the question as to how much the author actually knows about mormon history, and how much the author actually researched. It's too bad I can't give a zero star rating. Because of this, I will give her one star for the imaginative, creative conspiracy theory, and the development of it in an easy to read format. The format, although easy to read, is a very poor format for a 'non-fiction' book. The author makes the conversation between two relatives very very unreal and unbelievable. After a few chapters you don't believe these are real people having a real experience. Either that or they have the most unbelievable preconceived notions, prejudices, poor communications skills, and personal issues that you want to find out who these people are to help them. I tend to believe they are ficitonal, very fictional. All in all, if you want a conspiracy theory on mormon history, read this book. If you want a history book on mormon history, go to D. Michael Quinn or Fawn Brodie or Donna Hill. If you want a good fictioal story on mormon history, go to Mr. Lund and his Work and the Glory series. Other than that, I can't help you.
Mormons - Read This Book Feb 15, 2007
This book is not your typical "Let's trash Mormons" type of book. Everything that Mom has written has been extensively researched from original historical documents and she gives the references after each chapter. You'll fall in love with Joseph Smith all over again and remember why the Mormon Church attracted you in the first place. What the book is about is secret events perpetrate by Danites being directed by Brigham Young. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. But some of the Mormon history that you are taught in church when it comes to Brigham Young and the Danites are just fairy tales. Some of the things done under Brigham Young's command were not acts becoming of a prophet.
Fictional Garbage from an Anti-Mormon Jan 23, 2007
I guess it's true that you can publish anything these days. This book is a work of fiction, designed to pursuade readers to stay away from the LDS Church. It's garbage. There is no conspiracy or counter objective to Joseph Smith, other than simply restoring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth. If you want to learn about the LDS Church, don't buy this book. Call the missionaries instead.
