********** BOOK OF ETHER **********

This book is added to the end of the book because it's out of sequence chronologically. It starts at 2200BC with the Tower of Babel and the Dispersion. These people come to America, populate the continent for 1600 years, and are finally destroyed in a civil war of total destruction. The last man alive, Coriantumr, lives long enough to wander into the Mulekite camp shortly after their arrival(550-580??). He stays nine months and writes a bit of his history (Omni 21-22) before dying.
