This is Kraut's booklength work on the Book of Mormon's Three Nephites. Ogden Wedlund Kraut (1927-2002) was a polygamist, author and publisher who became best known for his writings about Mormon fundamentalist topics. Kraut was a stalwart independent who was unaffiliated, and never joined an organized fundamentalist group.

"One of the most renowned of all Independent Mormon fundamentalists, Ogden Kraut, born June 21, 1927, in Shelby, Montana, was ordained a Seventy by Joseph W. Musser in 1948, just prior to serving an LDS mission. He was Excommunicated in 1972 for "teaching and promoting the living of plural marriage in our day," he championed the Gospel cause by authoring about sixty-five books defending early fundamentalist doctrines. Because he stayed neutral regarding the specific teachings of the larger "groups" and avoided the intergroup doctrinal squabbling by not affiliating with and faction, most fundamentalist applauded Kraut's historical and doctrinal scholarship, even if they did not agree with all of his interpretations of fundamentalist traditions." - Brian Hales 'Modern Polygamy'.
