A series of four stories about Mormonism and the West. Included are:

"Blessing the Dog," about a man who against his wife's and Church's will decides to anoint and bless his dog.

"Sanctified, in the Flesh", about car trouble that leads to an encounter either with the Three Nephites or with a group of killers, maybe both.

"A Brother's Love," an epistolary attempt of a man to justify himself.
