Sample text

In fact, it was only the worst kind of luck that had brought them to this village, for this band of Comanches had been hit hard only a few days before by a strong party of Utes, who had killed several good warriors and made off with thirty horses.  In the end, however, they lost only three more warriors. So now these six disheartened men, sitting on this lonely rise, their ribbed-out ponies too tired to move underneath them, wondered what to do about a single feathery stream of smoke half a mile away.

His performance was being watched, yet he was powerless to perform.  His wild, pupilless eyes scared the colonel. The inept commander consented to the plan.  He took a new horse, a small, strong buckskin named Cisco, and managed to get himself into the saddle without crying out from pain while the whole outfit watched. As he walked the buckskin toward the low stone wall, a few pings of rifle fire came across the field, but otherwise it was dead silent and Lieutenant Dunbar wondered if the silence was real or if it always became this way in the moments before a man died.

Dunbar didn’t say anything, but Timmons’s incessant spitting made him recoil inwardly. It was a harmless act, but it irritated him nonetheless, like forever having to watch someone pick his nose.  When the air currents shifted, the stench of him covered Lieutenant Dunbar like a foul, unseen cloud.  Sometimes he would jump down into the tall grass, untie Cisco, and scout ahead a mile or two.  As Lieutenant Dunbar watched, the smallish buckskin suddenly lifted his amber eyes over the lip of his feed bag as if to see where the lieutenant was and, satisfied with a glance, went back to nibbling at his grain.
