Title A Pioneer Child Speaks Out
Description Klu-Klux-Klan, a secret klan in the South which terrorized the negro voters. They heard talk that the United States had dollars. Then cane stories from Utah. Work was beginning on the Salt Lake Tabernacle, and construction began on the telegraph line throughout the settlement of Utah. Colonel Connor and his men had been sent to Utah, by the government, to guard the telegraph and mail route; but more particularly to watch the polygamist movement among the Mormons. He had was in gun shot of the settlement, pointing directly at Brigham Young's home. His men had discovered gold in what is now Bingham Canyon. Ingrid Christine was listening to striking new phrases and unusual words she had never heard before. She would have pie and colorful but other's would be difficult. As they traveled toward the mountains, Ingrid Christine heard children crying from cold and hunger. She could see mothers frantically trying to cook over quenched fires. hub deep in the prairie mud. Then Brother Brown, the drive* but when it saw the weather it lost heart and went back." He could always make her laugh. "Oh what would I have done without Brother Brown!" she writes. "He wore dotty old, baggy pants and an ill fitting hat and suspenders." "Hell hath no music like a woman playing second fiddle." said Brother Brown. And Ingrid Christine knew that he meant polygamy. There were better days when Inorid Christine looked out There were green grass waving as far as eye could see. She could see the breath-taking view of the high mountain range, herds of buffalo, and the streams and rivers. On these days she wrote poetry of her own: Was when the great American Plains turned green. -117-
