I've been blessed to edit this history with R.F. over the past two years. He's wise, funny and extremely patient. Norm and I are grateful to call him our friend.
R.F. says, "This history of Fort Montezuma is available at the web link below. It is more presentable on a computer screen than a portable device. The document is in PDF format. It reads best if you click on the ‘presentation mode’ after it loads. Copy and past the following web link to your computer. http://www.ckmcdonald.com/FM/Fort-Montezuma.pdf
On my iPhone 7 and our computer, the photos at this link are lovely. Studying the book online works well for those who enjoy reading on devices or a computer.
R.F. has given me permission to publish a print version. To show his photographs best, printing must be done in high resolution on quality paper. Each printed book will cost around $27, with no profit to R.F. or me. I need pre-orders for at least 100 books to start the process, and checks must be sent to me by March 31, 2018. If you or your family members prefer a print version, please reply in the comments.
Here's an overview of the story: a few scouts and two families with children—James and Mary Davis and Henry and Elizabeth Harriman—responded to calls extended by leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to colonize on Montezuma Creek in southeastern Utah. After an arduous journey, they built Fort Montezuma. They nearly starved that first winter.
