The Way West (1955)

beaten down. Byrd, born timid and out of luck to boot.
It would have to be his wagon, Evans thought, that wrecked along the Brule, his one-remaining wagon that broke a wheel the second day.
The first day had been bad enough, on a narrow, crooked, stony trail that crossed the river only to cross back, that pushed through stubborn thickets, that crept sidelong on ridges shooting into mountains. They'd made twelve miles or more that day and pitched their camp and fallen into bed, each hoping that the worst was past.
It wasn't, though. The worst was still ahead. Evans, in the lead, had stopped his team where the trail wormed through a tangle of cottonwood, alder, brush and briers. Beyond, the mountains squeezed the stream. He wiped his forehead with his sleeve. "I swear, Dickl"
" Don't look possible," Summers said from his horse, meaning that it was.
" Ain't room, hardly, for a pony cart to go through here. Bush looks liable to wipe off the wagon tops."
Summers nodded. "Others has been through."
" A teamster's got to get aboard, for there's no room for him by the side. Wisht whoever cut the trail had cut a road and not a mole run long as they were doin' it."
Summers was silent, looking beyond to the high, straight-rising mountains.
" And when we get through, we got them tarnal hills. Be more broke wagon tongues today, or I'm a nigger."
" Want to turn back?" Summers' mouth had twisted to a grin.
