Overview

“Is there any decent place to stop between here and the mountains?” I asked the storekeeper.
“You can pretty much camp anywhere along the way,” he said. “The Indians are pretty friendly here abouts.”
“If you’re at all concerned about making it over the mountains, though, I suggest you stop at old lady Williams’ place at the base of the mountains.”
“What’s so special about Old lady Williams’ place,” Charlie asked.
“Well, don’t laugh at me for saying so, but that old lady can tell the future. Some say it’s in her bones. Some say she talks to spirits. Either way, she seems to know when it’s safe to cross the pass and when it isn’t. You’d do best to listen to her.”
I smiled to myself. Living out in the middle of nowhere could really play with a man’s head. Imagine believing in ghosts!
