The Way West (1955)

come out. Heavy water, but not so deep as some we've crossed. Watch out for that there ripple. We got to keep above her." The lined face grinned at Brownie. "What skeers me is your pa will git hisself washed off. Can't swim no better'n a salmon."
Fighting the current, seeing the lunge and sway of the wagon and the oxen half falling in the holes, Evans thought that only mountain men would have called this place a crossing. Only they would have found it and, finding, thought it possible to get a wagon through. This wasn't a ford, this wild, deep, unevenbottomed water. It was an invitation to drown. Let a team be pulled over the muscled ripple to his left, let even a saddle horse pass overl Go it, crittersl Again it was as if the solid land swam to them while the current banked against teams and wheels and wagon boxes and boiled off white at front and back. It swam to them, and the oxen lifted to it, and wheels ground in the gravel of the shore.
" We done itl" Evans yelled across at Hig as the leaders found the bank. "By godalmighty, yesl"
Hig didn't answer. He didn't need to. His thin grin answered for him.
" Dick, we done itl"
" 'Lowed we would."
" Fun," Brownie put in from the wagon seat. "Man, it was fun."
" Take the outfit up a ways, Brownie, and you and Mercy mind the young'uns. Don't want 'em underfoot."
" Want to take the team back?" Brownie asked.
" Unhitch and leave 'em rest awhile. We'll git some more across, I reckon, before usin' 'em again."
