Early Mormon Troubles in Mexico

Author Karl Young

The tales of hardship and privation endured by the first Mormon colonists who went to Mexico read like those of frontiersmen everywhere. They spell out most painfully hunger, scant clothing, wretched dwellings (scarcely adequate for beasts), disease without medicine, sickness without doctors, labor unremitting, none of the amenities of civilization. Even the simplest elements of living were sometimes almost nonexistent. This article contains many anecdotes from the daily lives of the Chihuahua colonists, revealing their resilience and perseverance until the Mexican Revolution forced them to abandon their community.
