      From THE FIRST STAMPEDE:
      "At long last, after, what had seemed like endless weary days, a streak of green timber appeared far off toward the western horizon. This meant fresh water for both men and beast. After a few more days of travel the cattle were becoming more and more restless and hard to control. At last the leaders, a pair of sleek young steers, raised their heads, sniffed a few breaths of the cool, damp air and decided to make a run for it. The others quickly followed. many of the wagons were overturned; some on their sides, and some completely. The one in which Zobeda was riding with the two little orphaned boys, Norvel and William Barnes, was one that turned completely over. They escaped, however, with only a few minor scratches and bruises."
