Bishop John Koyle's "Dream Mine"

koyle.jpg

There are stories of hidden treasure throughout the West, but John Koyle's belief in the "Relief Mine" went deeper than mere legend. Koyle was known as something of a prophet in his community. In 1894 he had a dream about riches in the mountains of Utah County, and he predicted these would be found at a time of great peril for the nation. Friday, we're talking about what's also called the "Dream Mine" and about why there are people who still believe. (Rebroadcast)
