This is one of the original interior illustrations I was commissioned to do for the book “From Darkness Unto Light”on the translation and coming forth of the Book of Mormon. This image shows the Martin Harris farm, 150 acres of which Martin Harris agreed to mortgage to secure the printing of the first edition of the Book of Mormon. Martin’s Palmyra neighbors were amazed that he would “abandon the cultivation of one of the best farms in the neighborhood” to pay for the publication. To his everlasting credit, he did, and millions the world over have been blessed by his financial sacrifice for the restoration.
