Best-selling writer Jon Krakauer turns from mountains to Mormons in his latest book, Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith, which attempts to link violence among non-Mormon polygamists to Mormon beliefs and history. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints rejects Krakauer's premise. NPR's Howard Berkes reports.
