In this series Nicholson tells of two instances in which, in his opinion, the Three Nephites appeared to Native American chiefs. Chief Torbuka was visited by three men who mysteriously disappeared after giving their messages. He then arranged to have members of his tribe baptized. A leader of the Uintah Reservation relates that while in Washington to speak with government officials he was visited by a personage on three different evenings who told him to trust the Mormons and told him about the Book of Mormon. The third part relates the experience of the Uintah chief.
