The Way West (1955)

tore into the brush, flushing a flock of ducks off the hidden river.
" Don't you wish you had time to roll a rock, Lije?" Summers asked as the three of them started on. "I knowed you when you did."
" Reckon I do."
The little smile went from Summers' face, leaving just the mark of thought. "No time to roll a rock," he said as if speaking to himself.
Evans wasn't of a mind then to pry into what Dick meant. "Not till we git the rest across," he said.
Byrd was waiting for them. He stood faced up to the trail. It occurred to Evans that age had come on him, age without age's gumption, giving him the appearance of an old boy. "It ain't nothing," Evans said to Mrs. Byrd, who had sat down to catch the shade a scrubby cedar made. She looked well enough, sitting there quiet with two of her children by her. She looked as she had at first, a milk-mild pigeon to the eye that hadn't seen beneath. "We'll put enough men on her so she can't tip over. How about it, Dick? You and Gorham and me?" They climbed up. "Push 'em across, Byrd." •
Things would have gone well enough if the outfit had been sound. The team eased onto the sidelong trail, pulling slow but steady, and the wagon canted to the slope and the three of them held it down. They were maybe halfway across when the downhill front wheel hit a rock. From his place on the wagon Evans couldn't see it, but he felt the jolt and heard the splinter of overweighted spokes. The wagon dropped like a cow on one knee and hung for an instant and lifted and crashed over.
