The Way West (1955)

ing. It occurred to Judith that she was the type of woman for the trail. She was stout and assured and able and unafraid. If ever a cloud hung over her, no one knew it. If ever the thought of miles depressed her, she didn't let on.
Miles. Distance. Distance was the enemy, not Indians or crossings or weather or thirst or plains or mountains, but distance, the empty, awesome face of distance, the miles on wrinkled miles of it, the levels and hills and hollows and bluffs, unconquerable by the slow turn of wheels or the creaking step of oxen. There was no end to it, not even any shortening. Morning and night it was there unchanged, hill and cloud and sky line beyond reach or reckoning. Sometimes she wondered at the stubborn, crazy courage of men who thought that day on day would add to Oregon.
" It seems so far," she said to Rebecca.
" Don't it, though?" Rebecca tossed a twist of clothes into a basket. "Tell you what helps, though. Don't think how far. Just think one day at a time."
" And one piece of underwear at a time, and one shirt?"
" I declare, Judie, you are wore out!"
Judith felt the quick, inner spasm of tears and wrestled it down, ashamed but close to crying still at this excitement of self-pity. She turned her face away, to Toddie who was punching at the ground with a stick. "I wish I was more like you, Rebecca."
" Like me?"
" Things don't seem to bother you."
" An' I never feel broke down or sad or anything?" "Do you?"
" Sometimes I walk on my lip, it's drawed so low."
