Sample text

Yet there was another thing that had begun to show itself in our town, and my brother Cain put it into words. “There is determination, there is the will to survive, the will to endure. ” Neely Stuart scoffed, yet he himself listened, and I know he profited by Cain’s words, for about Cain there was something indomitable, something immovable as a mountain. It had taken Ethan Sackett to open my eyes to my brother’s worth, but once opened I could see how much we all depended upon him and somehow waited for his leadership.

Webb and my brother Cain were as good, or almost as good. John Sampson had hunted along the creek bottoms back home, and as a boy had done some Indian fighting.

Sampson was only a shadow through the snow, still working on the roof. When I got the poles to the cabin I climbed up on the roof, and Bud handed the poles up to me. One by one I laid the poles in place, forming the temporary roof that would keep the Mackens warm until spring came when we could add a solid plank roof. When the last pole was in place I came down, and we started pitching dirt on the roof to seal it tight. Ruth Macken went inside and started a fire, and when she returned to the door Ethan was there to help her move her bedding inside.
