The Way West (1955)

"Not yet a while, I reckon."
Behind Evans the other wagons were beginning to pull up. "This ain't makin' hay," he said to Summers and climbed up to his seat and spoke to his team while Summers led off.
It was, Evans thought, like pushing a hole through the growth. Branches laced over the team and parted to the bulge of the wagon and ripped along the covered bows while the wheels jolted on the stumps. All he could see was the oxen stumbling and the thin trail and the brush coming at him and squeezing to the sides like water to the bow of a boat. The sound of it along the wagon top was like hard-driven rain.
Beyond, the trail led down a wash and up the other side and lifted from the river bottom to teeter along the shoulder of a mountain.
Up from the wash Evans stopped again. They called this slanted scar ahead a traill The wagon wasn't built that wouldn't lose its balance on it and fall over on its side. While he looked at it, Summers turned his horse around. "What you thinkin', hoss?"
" I ain't thinkin'. I'm just seein' wagons keel over."
" She's sidelong, sure enough."
" Wisht I had a wagon high-wheeled on the down side."
" An' sidehill critters, too, built to stand even on a
slant.
" I'll pull forward a ways to where she starts so's to give the other wagons room behind, and then we'll take 'em over one or two at a time, with two-three men standin' on the up side. Reckon that'll work?"
Summers said, "Sure. Alust've worked afore or the trail wouldn't be there."
