This study of daily experiences of scale focuses on activity patterns recorded in the journal of a Mormon woman living in Pine Valley, Utah c.1890–1920. The household as ‘private’ domestic space was weakly developed, and both the home and village were sites of community activity. Lofland's concept of ‘parochial space’ distinguishes the spaces used by one's social and kinship networks vs areas occupied by strangers. In Pine Valley's isolated situation, large-scale economic and political involvement appeared limited. More significant for Mormon women was a transcendent religious ideology that furnished simultaneity and integration of scales.
