The Way West (1955)

council to meet, but for a minute longer he stood where he was, pecking at the ground with his whip. He saw, again with approval, that other women had joined the group at the river's edge. One of the men had built a fire for them, and water was heating in a tub and a couple of buckets, sending up wisps of steam into air still a little chill from the night. To the south the animals grazed, herded loosely. Three horsemen were splashing across the river, hurrying to keep from miring in the quicksand that formed the bed. He identified them one by one-Summers and Gorham and the boy, Brownie Evans. He supposed they were going to hunt the buffalo that grazed northward.
It irritated him that they should set out, for buffalo grazing at a distance, away from where the road led. It was as if they assumed already, prior to the action of the council, that the train wouldn't move. Under good discipline the act would have been recognized as an act of impudence, if these people understood that word.
He blamed Summers most of all-and not for this small offense alone. He had the feeling that Summers contaminated the company with his casual independence, his backwoodsman's uncertain respect for authority. Summers knew the trail. He was a good guide, an expert hunter, a watchful scout, a never-sleeping sentinel. He was all of these, Tadlock had to admit to himself, but he was also a man hard to manage or impress, a man admired for his Indian graces and rude skills and so imitated in attitudes.
Walking to the council meeting. Tadlock found himself wishing resentfully that he had Summers' frontier lore to go along with his own impulse for order.
