Example text

If it came on to snow before I got off the mountain—and there could be heavy snows up yonder—I’d be in trouble. If a man got snowed in up there at this time of year, he might never get off. It was slide country and all the trails in or out were subject to snowslides. The year had been an open one with little snow.

Nonetheless, he was pa an’ I loved him, although that was a word we’d have been shamed to use. Pistol, he was my half brother, ten year older’n me, an’ he’d taken off a long time back, six or seven years back.
