Title The Latern
Description was not customary among the northern Europeans. Bravery and responsibility were expected, not rewarded. "Is she still in there?" asked Peter "Guess so, " aswered Jody. "I havn't seen or heard any thing." "Let's go," said Peter, holding up his lantern. This was Peter's big night. After all wasn't he responsible for the cows? The latern was his very own and now he was leading an expedition to rescue the calf. They had barely parted the willows when Gopher came running out. "Baa, baa," she bellowed, wagging her tail like an anxious puppy. Then they saw her. The light fell upon the Indian woman as she lay crouched upon a grassy bed. There was fear in her black eyes, but also a faint smile on her parted lips. In her arms was a new born baby, a tiny child to whom she had given birth here in the willows. The baby's head was covered with long black hair and it was wrapped in the same calico material as her skirt, S-ie was a very young mother. as the men looked upon her she pushed futher back into the willows, then like a fightened deer, she ran away into the night. "Don't go away, we won't hurt you," father spoke kindly but she was gone. "The others will be waiting for her up the trail," he added. "But why did Gopher stay in here all these hours? Why didn't she come when we called her , when her mother bellowed for her?'' Jody's questions came fast. "Two frightened souls in a lonely world," answered father. The calf was afraid of another loud noise, and the young mother was afraid of what was happening to her. The calf is a great pet, you know. She gave it the love and attention that it needed. So it stayed near her." - 32 -
