Quotes From the Novel

QUOTE ABOUT THE BUNKHOUSE

“The bunk house was a long, rectangular building. Inside, the walls were whitewashed and the floor unpainted. In three walls were small, square windows, and in the fourth, a solid door with a wooden latch. Against the walls were eight bunks, five of them were made up with blankets and the other three showing their burlap ticking”

BARN

“One end of the great barn was piled high with new hay and over the pile hung the four-taloned Jackson fork suspended from its pulley….A the sides the feeding racks were visible, and between the slats the heads of horses could be seen”

FARMHOUSE

“Think I’m gonna stay in that two-by-four house…”

THE MEN

“The door opened and a tall. Stoop-shouldered man came in. He was dressed in blue jeans and he carried a big push-broom in his left hand.”-Candy

“A powerful, big-stomached man came into the bunkhouse. His head still dripped from rubbing and dousing.”-Carlson

“A tall man stood in the door way. He held a crushed Stetson hat under his arm while he combed his long, black, damp hair. Like the others he wore blue jeans and a short denim jacket.”-Slim

 BARN

"One end of the great barn was piled high with new hay and over the pile hung the four-taloned Jackson fork suspended from its pulley. The hay came down like a mountain slope to the other end of the barn, and there was a level place as yet unfilled with the new crop. At the sides the feeding racks were visible and between the slats the heads of horses could be seen." page 83
