Rocky rode away from the school, by now no worse for what Bud had done to him. He turned away from Black Creek, striking up the trail to the south, making for Indian Range four miles away. The alkali dust lay thick, the sun, still high, was blazing down on the flat, arid land on either side of the trail, open land, which was broken, however, to the west and south by the mountains and their foothills.
Rocky rode on, after a couple of miles turning off the main trail to the west, aiming for the foothills. There lay the dilapidated ranch-house which was his home, weather-beaten, uninviting, set down amidst the hills and outcrops of the mountains.
Soon he was amongst the outcrops of barren rock; farther west only a few mesas as they were called, pockets of pasture, small tablelands amongst the hills, provided food for cattle, though food of poor quality. Indian Range, so called because nearby had once stood an important Apache town, destroyed during the Indian wars years before, owned territory of vast extent, running right into the foothills west and south, almost to the main mountain range. But of all that area only a few thousand acres would support cattle.
The boy rode along the narrow, winding trail that led through the outcrops, which themselves often reared several hundreds of feet in height. Then suddenly he caught a glimpse of a pony ahead of him-of

Rocky drew in immediately, for he had recognised the rider ahead of him. It was Bud Werner. What was he doing here a long way from the Bar-20, on Indian Range ground ?
Slipping from the saddle the boy left his pony and went on foot to the next bend. Here was a cluster of boulders affording cover. He used these and peered round the bend. The trail ran straight after that for half a mile, as he knew. He wanted to know if Bud
