Chapter 19: Red Mormonism. From Winnemucca, an Indian camp in Nevada, to Brigham, a prosperous Mormon town in Salt Lake Valley, we race and wriggle through a mountain district, not more striking in physical aspect than in human interest. Rolling on the level of Ben Nevis, with a score of snowy peaks in front and flank, we climb through woods of stunted pine, ascending by the Pallisades to Pequop, at the height of Mont d'or, from which we slide by way of Humboldt Wells and the American
nders, Delegate George Q. Cannon, and Professor Orson Pratt.
In the camp of Red Cloud, a chief of the Teton Sioux, you hear the same talk of divine help, and of standing face to face with God, as you hear in the Lion House and Tabernacle at Salt Lake. I will consult the Great Spirit, says Red Cloud, when the Indian Commissioners press a point.
In speaking to the Whites, Red Cloud never drops this tone of priest and seer.
Whatever the Great Spirit tells me to do, that I will do.
