I recently finished Under The Banner of Heaven myself. Very interesting..I was blown away by the prevelance of violence in Mormon history, which germinated and grew from Joseph's Smith's notion of "The Principle." Watching people live the principle and life w/in a fundamentalist compound makes Big Love quite interesting also. Harry Dean Stanton, Bruce Dern and Grace Zabriskie's characters are the most compelling.
