The Way West (1955)

shared their times and feelings, as if, quiet in the walls, sad in the empty rooms, was the memory of their doings, was the dread of strangers coming.
Outside, her menfolks talked, thinking out loud how to place things in the wagon. Lije's voice came to her strong, full of a sort of forward feeling she hadn't heard in years. And so it was all right, she told herself. The moving was all right, hard as it was. Oregon was all right. What Lije needed-and what Brownie would need later-was a better chance than in Missouri. What he needed was a dare. What he needed was to find out what he amounted to. A slow-going, extraeasy-tempered man, said people, not understanding it was his self-belittlement that made him so, not knowing that, without it, there wasn't much he couldn't do. That was one thing she was sure of. Except for giving up the house she could be almost glad that Lije had got one of his rare and sudden notions and signed up for Oregon.
She swept the dirt out the door and took off her dustcloth. Everything was in the wagon. Everything. Nothing in the house but space, space and the broom and the flecks of dust she'd raised and the unspoken loneliness.
" Old Rock's ready, Ma. How about you?" Brownie's voice echoed in the dead rooms, in the room where he'd been born, where he'd lain as a baby in the cherry cradle Lije had built.
Lije walked from the wagon and came in and had a look around. "Seems you got everything, 'less you want to load up the house, too."
" Wish I could."
