ABSTRACT
The article discusses the experiences of families, members of the Russian nonconformist sect known as the Molokans, who stayed in Utah's Park Valley for one to three years in the mid-1910s. Topics covered include the diversity of the Molokan settlers, differences in the way they worshipped, and diverse paths followed that were often related to sub-sectarian differences. Also mentioned are the history of the Molokan faith and the families' move to California due to the drought in Utah.
