Title The Warning
Description then Fa just naturally gets a prompt and fair warning. With that in Bind, it's easy to see why Pa mains the unreasonable brag that the more wives and kids be has, the safer be is. So as a family we're close, mighty close. It gives a. body a good feeling, Just knowing there are a few folks out there who love and can be depended upon. As far as I've ever been able to tell, there isn't any trouble too big tbat a few of ob Soderbergs can't handle it. Anyway, when kids first become adults, they fall in and out of love pretty regular. It's painful, but Pa says it's also necessary, for tbat is how a person discovers who truly and completely loves who.

It made a feller want to lie down and lick his wounds, it pained that bad. "Veil, ol' hose," I growled, " reckon you and I ain't needed too badly here in fountain Green. Hot after tonight. Suppose we take these supplies and get on up to the hard and...." And that was when I realized that I had accidentally ridden home. I hadn't meant to. I'd meant to leave town and strike out for Zene Hill's sheep camp up in the Uinta Houn-taine where I worked as camp tender. But now that I was suddenly to home, the thought of my feather tick was too ¦nob, and I couldn't turn sway from it.
