CHAPTER 1 - BLACK CREEK FEUD

" You ought to be ashamed of yourself, Bud, but that's expectin' too much, maybe. Get inside the school-house." Then to Rocky, " Better get cleaned up, son. If you don't feel like comin' in after, that'll be all right by me."
Rocky did not reply at once but dabbed at his blood-stained face. The rest of the boys were making their way to the school-house, Bud in the lead. His cronies were gathered about him, commiserating with him that he hadn't been allowed to finish Rocky. After a few moments Doc Grant and Rocky were left alone.
" It's O.K., Doc, I'll be in class," said Rocky. " I ain't lettin' Bud think he's sent me home to bed."
Grant peered at the boy through his spectacles. The Doc had always been decent to young Rocky.
" Sure, I know what you mean," he said. And then, " Maybe you'll be glad to be leavin' school, Rocky ? "
The boy made a gesture. Sure he was glad he was leaving school in a few days, glad to be able to help his father at Indian Range, glad to be a man and not a boy any longer. Glad, too, that he wouldn't have to come into daily contact with Bud Werner. But there were reasons, too, why he wasn't glad to be leaving, one in particular.
" Guess I'll miss you, Doc," he muttered.
The schoolmaster put his hand on Rocky's shoulder. Ever since Grant had blown into Black Creek ten years before, pretty well down and out, he had run the school. He had come along at just after the previous schoolmaster had died. Doc Grant was an educated man, had been to college back on the eastern seaboard near New York-though the fact that he could read and write was enough for the ranchers of Black Creek, for most of them couldn't.
