Because of fear, the people of Palmyra tried to prevent publication of the Book of Mormon. For this reason two copies of the translation were made and only portions went to the publisher at a time. A covenant was made among people in the community that not a single copy would be bought. Despite this difficult beginning, the Book of Mormon has become the second best seller in the nation, published also in Braille.
