David L. Clark combines what historians know about the migration of Lehi and his family to the Promised Land (from Arabia to the New World) with historical climate and weather patterns and currents in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. He discusses why Lehi, and later Nephi, may have chosen a certain path and timing to get to the Promised Land.
