BRIGHT SWORDS is an eighty seven year chronicle of certain inhabitants of ancient America; probably spanning a period from 160 b.c. to 73 b.c. and based upon narrative contained in a sacred scriptural record known as THE BOOK OF MORMON. Bright Swords speaks of hatred and sin, of idolatry and internecine warfare, but the principle message is a ringing testimony to the capacity of God's children to eschew wickedness and experience a mighty change of heart. Bright Swords teaches of conversion and repentance, of love and PEACE. Swords are made bright when they are not stained by the blood of brothers. Sweet is the peace the GOSPEL OF CHRIST brings.

The procession that crosses Chaucer's pages is as full of life and as richly textured as a medieval tapestry. The Knight, the Miller, the Friar, the Squire, the Prioress, the Wife of Bath, and others who make up the cast of characters -- including Chaucer himself -- are real people, with human emotions and weaknesses. When it is remembered that Chaucer wrote in English at a time when Latin was the standard literary language across western Europe, the magnitude of his achievement is even more remarkable. But Chaucer's genius needs no historical introduction; it bursts forth from every page of The Canterbury Tales.
