    Excerpt from Judith of the Godless Valley

    There was a shriek and a gray horse, carrying a youth with the schoolmarm clinging behind him, ¿ew across the yard and reared to avoid breaking his knees on the steps. The schoolmarm scrambled down, still scream ing protests at the grinning rider. One after another now arrived, perhaps a dozen youngsters, varying in age from five to eighteen, each on his or her own lean, half broken horse, each appearing with the same ¿ying leap from the steep trail to the level, each racing across the vard as if with intent to burst through the schoolhouse door, each bringing up with the same pull back of foam ing horse to its haunches. And with each horse came a dog of highly varied breed.

    The youngsters had been racing about the ledge for some time before the grown people began to appear. The women, most of them very handsome, were dressed dowdily in mackinaws and anomalous foot covering. But the men were resplendent in chaps and short leather coats, with gay silk neckerchiefs, with silver spurs and embossed saddles.

    When Judith returned with Maud Day there were thirty or forty people and almost as many dogs milling about the yard. The log school had weathered against the red wall of the mesa for fifty years. There prob ably was not a person in the crowd who had not gone to school there, who did not, like Judith, love every log in its ugly sides. Judith caught Douglas' sardonic gaze, tossed her curly head and urged Swift up the steps, where she looked toward the road to the Pass, shading her fine eyes with a mittened hand.
