Troubled Waters

The road had been rough; disease ran rampant and game impossible to find. When we reached the raging river, it was too late to return.

We made it halfway across before the oxen lost their footing, the wagon disappearing into the deep.

  1. Great story, Arden – I like how you set the scene with details from the past and then brought us into the moment.

  2. I like your choice of wagon – stands out from the crowd this week.
    I’m reading “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” right now, so this resonated with me even more.

Thoughts??
