The Way West (1955)

Still, he had been uneasy, for the desert of the Green was rough going even for hard-case hunters and horses lightly packed. Could wagons and oxen make it, and farmers and townlivers and women and their young? He had dragged the short cut back to memory, had hoofed again the forty-odd dry miles of it, over thirsty sagebrush and rifted gravel and down the harsh fall to the Green, the wind fierce in his face, the day sunstroke-hot or snow-cold, for desert weather seemed always one or other. But it was water that mattered most, or the want of it. Not any place was there a drink for man or brute.
" I do' know," he said to the council that Evans had called together. "I'm thinkin' we can come it, but it's hard and chancey."

" There's a lot of hell ahead, Lije, beyond Fort Hall."
" 'Bout time we were gettin' a taste of hell then."
Tadlock agreed to that, saying, "We're not traveling for pleasure. Maybe we can cut ahead of that company that passed us."
" If'n it's hot, we'll have to roll by night."
" We ain't scared of the dark, Dick," Evans said.
And so they had decided on the short cut, partly maybe because it was a dare, partly, Summers thought
