Read an Excerpt

When our breakfast of bones and hide was ready boiled with a yeast was ready, he sat up in the tent to receive his share. While drinking the water and chewing the hide, we again carefully considered how long it should take George to reach Grand Lake, and how long it would be before help would arrive, if he were able to obtain any, and how long it would require me to reach the flour and return. It was, roughly speaking, forty miles to Grand lake, and fifteen miles to the flour.
