On a sandy bank a raccoon washed a squirming crayfish and did not observe the flatboat until the sudden smell of it startled him into releasing his grip on his meal. The crayfish scampered into the water; the raccoon scampered into the underbrush. While the two men poled in silence, the other scanned the riverbank. After they had bought the flatboat from him, Kruger had joined Paul and Eli in St. Louis. The German owed a sizeable gambling debt at the saloon and was being pressed for payment. With the money from Eli, he had paid up and proceeded to beat the saloon keeper senseless; then needing to leave town in a hurry, he had joined them on the trip up the Missouri to the homestead of Jefferson Merrick.

But we’ve got to risk it. ” Light stood so that he was in plain sight of the men on the boat and lifted his rifle over his head. Sun glinted on the hair of the tall man who waved back. Leaving their packs on the edge of the ridge, Light and Maggie walked hand in hand down to the sandy beach.

Even so, he would much rather use a knife, and some evenings he and Maggie entertained themselves with contests between the two of them. The following weeks were a heavenly time for Maggie as they rode through the wilderness, skirting the flooded lowlands and Indian villages. Deep forests surrounded them, and at times Maggie wondered how Light knew which way to go. One afternoon Light left Maggie in a secluded place along a small stream so that he could scout ahead.
