Description saw it and gasped. A very large, grey wolf. It saw her and immediately crouched, its ears forward, and Sally Ann was frantic. She knew if she got up and ran that awful beast would charge! Looking around, she did see a stout stick within reach. She grabbed it, hoping this poor weapon would protect her. There were no good-sized rocks in sight. The animal continued to advance. At last, it stopped, but it was too close for comfort, and it soon resumed its crouch. Her heart nearly stopped as she knew very soon it would charge. She raised her club. A shot rang out! Sally Ann nearly jumped out of her skin. The wolf jumped too, falling within feet of her, very dead. Jumping up, she heard the crashing of a horse through the trees. What a beautiful sight! Here was a young man, dressed entirely in buckskin, but not an Indian, and how good he was with his gun. He jumped to the ground. "Are you all right?" he demanded, breathless. Sally Ann was frankly crying. "Oh yes, I'm just fine. But I was sure a goner if you hadn't come just when you did. But wait a minute. You aren't in our train." "No. I didn't recognize you either. Are you in the Mormon one?" "Well, I was, until I got good and lost. Where did you come from?" "Remember seeing a train on the south side of the river? We are heading for Oregon. Our two trains have been travelling along, about parallel with each other for weeks. You get ahead, and then we do. But yours left the river a while back. Haven't seen it lately " "Neither have I," she replied drily. 52
