Homemade Swing, Nevada

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

After helping bring in the hay harvest, Amber Barlow, 16, soars on a homemade swing with friends. Their 4,000-acre ranch in Pony Springs, Nevada, belongs to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), a polygamous offshoot of the Mormon Church, or LDS. FLDS members, even young children, are expected to help with chores—sowing, picking, canning—throughout the year.
