Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 061
Description tance. Her father and mother have left the church and Utah, and are among the most eloquent antagonists of Mormonism, while she clings to the faith they taught her in her childhood.34 She seemed entirely contented, and praised her new home as much as if it lay in our green forest land, instead of among the dreary valleys of Utah. T. reminded me that our valleys, too, were snow-covered at this season, and that the plains of which she spoke would soon be a grassy sea, abounding in beautiful flowers. But what can atone for the absence of trees in a landscape? CEDAR SPRINGS-FILLMORE When we emerged from Round Valley, before descending into the Pah-vant country, we looked back upon a grand view. The nearer mountains were destitute of snow, and black and frowning; but on the far horizon the sun lit up a num- ber of snowy summits, Mount Nebo, still visible, highest of all, and most beautiful. Here and there were silvery threads 34Joseph A. Y oun `s g f ourth wife was Clara Stenhouse, the daughter of T. B. H. and Fanny Stenhouse. T. B. H. apostatized from the Mormon church and became a leader of the Liberal party and a founder of the Salt Lake Trz'bune. He authored a book, The Rocky Mountain Saints: A Full and Complete History of the Mormons From The First Vision of loseph Smith to the Last Courtship of Brigham Young (London: Ward, Lock and Tyler, 1874). Fanny Stenhouse wrote a book highly critical of the Mormons and the institution of polygamy. It was widely distributed and appeared under at least three different titles, A Lady's Life Among the Mor- mons: A Record of Personal Experience (New York: American News Company, 1872); An Englishwoman in Utah: The Story of a Life's Experience in Mormonism, An Autobiography (L on d on: Simpson Law, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1882); and "Tell It All": The Story of a Life's Experience in Mormonism; An Autobiog- raphy . . . (Hartford, Connecticut: A. D. Worthington, 1875). 61
