Ammon Update: I'm about 120 pages into drafting my next book: AMMON. He's a compelling character to write about. I'd love to hear your comments about what you find most significant about Ammon's character. I think it's remarkable that he'd give up his kingship to be a missionary in enemy territory.
Questions I'm working on:
1. Do you think those he "slayed" with the slingshot were killed or just injured? Or was the only person he mortally wounded the leader of the Lamanite band?
2. Flocks--in my research, sheep weren't introduced until the Spanish came to MesoAmerica. So what are the flocks that are referred to during Ammon's time? Turkeys? Fowl? Ducks? It's weird to imagine herding any of these animals. In Ether 9, sheep and horses are mentioned, but that it the only place.
