The Way West (1955)

Tadlock and Mrs. Mack had given, it made a sweet and fizzy drink.
" Land's sakel" Mercy said. "Just wait now. You'll all get some." She cupped it up without letting herself think about the taste of it, for the thought troubled her stomach as the smell of frying bacon did or of onion-seasoned stews. "I'm goin' from the littlest to the biggest. That's fair."

All night she had listened to it, the puff of it like a hardblown breath above the murmur of the river and the voice of the wind in the trees. "Sh-h-h," it said and breathed in. "Sh-h-h," as if it knew.

" Now me. Now me, Mercy!"
