Title Journey
Description "Come on. Here, I'll boost you on the back of my saddle We'll have to cross the water, keep your feet up as high as you can. It isn't very deep right here " Gratefully, she followed his direction and they rode to his wagons He told her he had been out looking for some stray cows, and decided they must have crossed the river in the night, so he did too She silently thanked the Lord for her rescue and His protection As they neared the wagon train, they found the missing animals and herded them along in front of them She was very thankful to be with people again Her benefactor lifted her down from the horse, then the women of the train took over, helping her with a bath, gave her clean clothes, and fixed wonderful food She had eaten some jerky on the way, which had given her needed energy, her escort apologizing that this was all he had, she assuring him it was most welcome. After a week of nothing but berries, jerky was heavenly. She washed her own clothes gratefully, thanking everyone profusely for their kindness. That evening Josh, the man who had found her, took her to talk with the wagonmaster. This bewhiskered, stern, older man heard Josh's report in silence Then he scolded Sally Ann for her foolishness, telling her crossing these plains was very serious business and everyone had to obey the master, on this train, him. She nodded in silence. Then he told her she would travel with them until they made contact with her own train. She nodded again and thanked him as they left. "Whew!" she told Josh as they walked away. "He certainly is the boss." "That he is," Josh laughed. "We all do exactly as he orders, and how he loves to order But that's al! right He does know what he is doing, even if this is his first experience on the trail He used to be a soldier, as if you couldn't tell." Sally Ann laughed for the first time since her ordeal began. 53
