Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 098
Description soil, and a crumbling old adobe fort, all red. Beside it a rushing stream dashed up wavelets of turbid red. Then came three or four red adobe houses, and some stacks of the brilliant straw- colored hay, with freshly-opened green hearts. The dreary wind howled and whistled among the walls and palings, and shook our carriages when we halted for a few minutes. Thankfulness overpowered me that, wherever else my lot in life might be cast, it was to be neither at Buckhorn Springs nor Red Creek Village ! 52 Leaving the red cliffs behind, our carriages crawled through heavy sand at the base of a rocky wall which reminded me of Third Avenue, New York, as I remember it before the day of Central Park. It wanted only a street car, some stray bits of straw and newspaper, three Irish shanties, and a stencilled "Try Tar- rant's Effervescing," to make me feel at home. The rendering of the wind-blown dust over the smoothly-slanting rock was perfect. "Hark ! " cried Evan, suddenly. "There's music. Listen ! " We all laughed; for I had been saying this was like coming into New York, and Willie said, with the air of superiority which his nicer ear for music entitled him to assume over Evan, "It's only a cow mooing," and he pointed to a herd in the distance. But the gusts of wind soon brought the sound plainly. It was the brass band from Parowan come out to meet us, escorted by a troop of many youths. The horses danced and plunged as the band- 52Red Creek Village is now Paragonah- an Indian name for many springs. The houses are of red brick or red adobe. The earth is red, and the water in the creek runs red at flood stage. It is no wonder it was called Red Creek Village. On Wheeler's 1872-73 map, the name had been changed to "Paragoonah." 98
