CHAPTER 5 - FOOTHILL TRAIL

He wasn't surprised that he didn't catch a glimpse of Ned, who could move as silently as a snake, but he hadn't expected that the other guy would prove so skilful. But that was the way of it-Bill saw nothing.
Jake came to him, moving up the other slope, drawn by the crack of the shots. And then from away to the right, moving along the ridge of the hill, came Ned Duvene, sliding out from the shelter of a rock not twenty feet from Bill and Jake, crouching, watching the ground at the foot of the hill.

He took it that Bill, riding towards Black Creek through the foothills, had heard the noise of the earlier firing and had come to investigate. It wasn't until later that he learned that though in essence this was the answer, there was a whole lot more to it than that.
Shortly after, the three rangers were with the boy whom Jake had brought to the foot of the other slope and left under cover before returning to the ridge after Bill had intervened up there. Rocky Bruce was unconscious, lay there breathing heavily, his face flushed. His hair was matted at the top of the skull and dried blood showed. It was evident that he had been roughly handled.
