According to The Book of Mormon, the city Boaz (/ˈb.æz/[1]) was in the land northward near the land Desolation. The city is mentioned only once in the book, in Mormon 4:20. In this city, the Nephites fought boldly and repelled the first attack of the Lamanites but retreated after the second attack.
