of the cliff, though some distance back from the lip, Bill reckoned. Pasco led them to a narrow goat-track that zigzagged up the cliff. He went up it as lithely as a panther. The rangers followed, guns in hand.
Already the trip into the hills had borne unexpected fruit. Now maybe there was more to come off the same bough. Bill didn't reckon that somebody had been target-shooting.
He allowed Pasco to take the lead when they reached the top of the cliff, was willing to admit that the Indian's sense of direction was better than his, better even than Ned Duvene's.
Pasco made away from the cliff edge, parallel with the cleft already explored but some quarter of a mile from it. No more shots were heard ; there was silence over the hills and the outcrops. In the distance the mighty mountains reared sullenly to the sky.
They pushed on for another half a mile but still saw nothing, heard nothing unusual. But somewhere hereabouts shots had been fired. Bill badly wanted to know who had fired them and why.
Pasco halted, at a loss. The shots must have been fired very near to the spot where they now were, but there was no lead, no line.

Tuck Werner, Jeb Schultz, the guy Charlie and Spike Borden, were grouped round a man lying against a rock, blood bespattering his chest Ned and Pasco, ahead of Bill and Jake, came to a sudden halt and ducked under cover.
