The children of Hilda and Leo Bringhurst share stories of growing up in Toquerville, Utah between 1930 and the 1950’s.  Luzon, Wayne, and Antone Bringhurst remember working on the family farm and reading with their mother.

"There wasn't any money. But more important to them was that their children learned how to work. And we all went down to work from daylight till dark. After dark, we'd can fruit to have for the winter. That was their main goal- to teach us how to work, and how to save, and how to be successful."
