The Latter-day Saints have developed a remarkable sense of place and an uncanny sense of direction. Their appreciation of place and their spatial cognition is closely linked to Mormon history, which is often depicted in terms of evocative locales and far-flung migrations. These not only position the Americas as central to theology, but also link the New World to the Old World through scripture. Moreover, the Mormon missionary program ensures that Latter-day Saints think spatially as they spread the faith. Mormonism, in fact, proves the axiom that time and space—history and geography—are inseparable. From its inception, both centrifugal and centripetal forces have characterized the geography of the Mormon experience.
