It then ran straight, growing wider with every yard, turned abruptly and soon was hidden from view by rearing, jagged outcrops. What lay behind Bill did not know, though his knowledge of the country led him to guess that a mesa might be situated beyond the outcrops. It did happen like that in this district, a small tableland of pasture ringed about with hills or mountains, cut off from the neighbouring territory either almost or completely by outcrops.
Of the guy who had been on top of the cliff on the other side of the cleft there was no sign-and now no sound. Bill himself could not have been seen or heard, he was dead sure of that. For all his bulk he could move like a cat ; and what he didn't know about taking cover wasn't worth knowing. He crouched behind a rock and his keen eyes scanned the other side of the cleft.
