The Way West (1955)

Evans bent the talk to business. "The big thing is, what do we do with the cattle? Like old Greenwood said, what do we do with the cattle?"
His words, it seemed to Mack, were like pebbles dropped into a pool, or like the afterwash of pebbles into quiet water. His own attention rippled to them and ran back to Laramie, to Laramie and night and the one night afterwards along the trail. And it flowed along to Soda Springs and the girl despairing and to Fort Hall and the marriage and Brownie giving his stiff no to the offered gift of oxen, to a gift that wasn't a gift but a cheap offering to peace of mind.
Patch said, "I imagine we can drive the cattle through. The trail from the Dalles to the Willamette can't be any worse than some we've traveled."
" Who's we?" Evans asked.
" Well, one of us. Some of us."
" There ain't any trail to speak of. Remember that.
Got to find your own, and no one knows the way, except Summers has a good idee."
" What's wrong with Summers?" Shields asked Evans.
" He said he'd trail 'em."
" Well?"
" Don't think we ought to let him do it."
Daugherty asked, "And why not?"
" We paid him just to get us to the Dalles and didn't pay him much, and he's done all and more'n we could ask."
Mack put himself into the conversation. "There's nothing standing in the way of a new contract. We can offer him more money."
Evans answered quietly, "Ain't everyone well fixed like you."
