“Ammon Went to the Land of Ishmael”

W. Cleon Skousen

Ammon turned out to be a man of great physical strength and a keen intellect. He chose to go down to a region known was the land of Ishmael. It was named after the elder apostate sons of father Ishmael. They had apostatized and become Lamanites almost from the beginning.
