Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 025
Description they jolted roughly over coarse pebbles and gravel. The sky clouded over, too; and its dull gray met the gray of the uninter- esting plain, with its unvarying shabby growth of wormwood, no twig of which seems to have a natural termination, but to have been bent round and twisted or bitten ofi. Towards nightfall, as our weary horses dragged us on to the close of the long day's journey, hills we had seen in the distance ahead began to tower up tall mountains; hiding still higher snowy peaks beyond. A cluster of houses and fenced gardens lying in their shelter was pointed out as Nephi. We saw smokes away up on one of the heights above the town, which T. said were probably Indian fires; and the children and I felt, with quickened pulse, that we were nearing the pass into treacherous "Tab-i-yuna's" country. NEPHI I could see little of NEPHI in the gathering darkness: it was evidently smaller than Provo. The carriages halted on entering town, and separated company. Ours was driven rapidly up a cross-street to a plain adobe house, standing by itself. Lights shone from every door and window; the father of the family stood waiting to help us out of the carriage, and the wives and children greeted us warmly as we crossed the threshold. We were first ushered into a large bedroom on the ground floor, where a superb pitch-pine fire was blazing; and two well- cushioned rocking-chairs were drawn forward for us, while half a dozen hospitable children took ofi my boys' wrappings, as the mother disembarrassed me of mine.
