The bull was old, but showed evidences of good breeding. They kept the cattle close herded on the mesa close by, letting them get acquainted with their new home and the route to a seep in nearby Dark Canyon. During the first week they killed two mountain lions, one of them while it was engrossed in feeding on a young deer. It was more than a week after the discovery of the tracks of the six horses in the basin before Riley managed to go back to the place alone. Here and there the passage of deer or flurries of dust had almost wiped them out, but Riley worked out the trail.

On the third day Riley rode out again with Cruz, and killed a deer. It was a good shot, a running shot, and he broke the deer's neck just above the shoulder. That night, they talked long beside the fire, and Riley added a little to what he had learned from the file of newspapers in the office of the Rimrock Scout. The picture he was getting was filled in a little here and there, and from the picture three men were beginning to emerge.
