Praise & Reviews for Black Hawk's Mission of Peace:

Diana and I have just finished reading a book that is told from the long forgotten Timpanogos Nation by Phil Gottfredson or Mr. Phil. My heart heaved. And the tears flowed from both our eyes as we heard the Indian version and their stories. Most touching is the statement made at the end of the book by Mary Meyers who is the current leader of her tribe. Her words burned into my soul and I felt her healing wisdom and truth of the importance of all of us having a greater awareness and expended understanding of what went on in these valleys during the Black Hawk war. This book ranks in the top 5 of all the hundreds of books that I have ever read in my life...and I have read hundreds if not thousands. Please purchase a copy of this book and read it. Truth matters. This suppressed truth touched Mr. Phil's heart. He gave up a job in management of the University Mall and went on a quest that his inner compass compelled him to do because of his sensitive heart and pursuing mind sacrificed for in order to be a generational spokesperson for the long forgotten Timponogos Nation. - Larry Ballard, Utah.

"The second half of your book, was a complete surprise. Such a breath of fresh air. Your vulnerable documentation of your spiritual journey is invaluable and insightful. I long for experiences like the ones you described." -Marcus, Utah

"This book is an honest look at how native peoples have been and still are treated by an encroaching group who believe they have a higher right to do whatever they want to do, regardless of the consequences in human pain and suffering. Mr. Gottfredson has done an amazing job of telling this story with passion and honesty. As you follow him through his journey of discovery, you will be captivated by his experiences. As many have said, this book should be a part of every American high school student's study of American history, for if we could be willing to acknowledge our whole history and see the truth, the truth will set us free. Bravo, Sir !" -Barely Ablemann, Washington DC

"I am so grateful for this book. I have lived in Utah all my life and had very little understanding of the history of the native people. Finding this book helped me to see just how incredible the Timpanogos Tribe is, and how the effects of my ancestors settlement are still being felt so deeply by this tribe today. So grateful for this book. The ways that it tells it from the Tribe’s perspective. Read this book!" -M. Owens, Utah

"Everyone--but especially every resident of Utah, past or present--should read this book. Mr. Gottfredson's recursive style embeds the stories and the pain of Utah's unacknowledged genocide in a personal journey of enlightenment and growth that is ultimately optimistic and hopeful. He foregrounds Native perspectives with a quiet insistence that establishes layers upon layers of truth. I am not exaggerating when I say that this book has changed my life. I can't recommend it enough". -Stephanie T Lundeen

"This book was truly inspired! It was powerful, filled with emotions, truths and love. Thank you Phillip Gottfredson -Cynthia Johnson, Utah"

"This book completely changed my life." -Johnathan Canlas, Utah

"As the artist that created the art for the cover of Phillip B Gottfredson's book Black Artist Carol Pettit HardingHawk's Mission of Peace, I will tell you, the history of the great Timpanogos Nation that Phillip shared with me took on a life and spirit of its own. As Phillip spoke of the extraordinary life of Black Hawk, I felt a deep and spiritual calling for me to get involved. This great warrior's story overwhelmed me with compassion, and understanding." -Carol Lahoma Pettit Harding, Utah
