Excerpt
WHEN the men drove up for supper, they found the table unset, the fire out, and the woman tossing on the bed. There were six of the men, besides Tennant, the Englishman, who, by the bitter road the younger son must tread, had come to Nebraska and the sandhill country, ranching, and who was put over the rest of the men because he did not get drunk as often as they did. Sharpneck, the cattleman, was in town. So was his daughter, whose hungry cats darted about the disorderly room, crying to be fed. The men were astonished at the condition of affairs. The woman had never failed them before in all the months that she had cooked, and made beds, and washed and scrubbed for them. They swore hungry oaths, for the autumn air gets up a sharp appetite when a man is in saddle all day.
