CHAPTER 1 - BLACK CREEK FEUD

For a brief moment Rocky saw the eager faces of the other boys peering at him as he staggered, only saving himself by flinging out one hand to the ground. He saw the faces blindingly clearly-but then Bud's body blotted out everything. Rocky saw his enemy prepare to administer the coup de grace. Nothing could save him now, Rocky knew that.
Yet something did save him. There came a sudden clanging of a bell from the school-house. Bud heard it and automatically hesitated. Then from the back of the crowd, now some thirty strong, a voice was raised.
" The Doc-hey, Bud, the Doc !"
Other voices joined in, boys moving hurriedly back; and there was Doc Grant as he was called, the settlement schoolmaster, who spent his days trying to batter some sort of knowledge into the heads of ranchers' and cow-hands' sons.
Bud Werner hesitated, seemed as though he would take no notice of Grant's coming but then reluctantly dropped his hands. Rocky scrambled upright as Doc Grant came through the crowd.
Doc Grant was a man of middle age, shabbily dressed, his long face cadaverous. A straggling moustache adorned his upper lip, a pair ofsteel-rimmed spectacles his bony nose. He was not the man, one would have thought, to exact obedience; yet now silence descended over the crowd in the dusty yard. There was something about Grant, in spite of his appearance. He could exert great influence, as he had done for some ten years here in Black Creek.
He looked at Bud and then at Rocky, noting the signs of punishment on the latter's face. He noted, too, that Bud was unmarked, for the one blow Rocky had landed had done no damage. Then he spoke.
