The Way West (1955)

"I pray God so. You take some men with you."
" Ah-h!"
" You do that, Lije."
" On account of bein' so helpless, I reckon? I'll tie this here team to the tail an' you drive the lead. The goin's good enough. Git down."
He walked ahead and whoaed his team and tied her oxen to his wagon and saw her down and up again. Before he spoke to the steers, he got his rifle out.
" You take someone with you, Lije."
" Don't worry about that. You just watch the teams."
He walked back along the oncoming line, expecting to borrow a horse from one of the drivers. He was about halfway to the horse herd when, beyond it, beyond the straggled line of cattle, upcoming from the far rise, he saw heads lifting, and shoulders, growing into horsemen that he took for Indians. He couldn't be sure. He waited, squinting, with dread sharpening in him, and saw two figures unlike the rest and one of them like Summers. His eyes filmed with straining.
He knew what he had to do. He knew what a captain had to do, regardless. He shouted, "Botter! Bring your horse! Quick!"
He jumped on, throwing out, "Injuns! Git the men . to push the horses up! We'll corral."
He galloped to the head of the line, crying, "Injunsl Come onl" as he galloped, waving the train on toward the stream where it would be sure of water come a siege. He curved it around on the bank. "Cap your pieces, all of youl And stay inside. I'll look."
He wrenched the horse around to his own wagons. "Becky, I seen Dick, and Brownie, I think. Looked all right."
