what General Lee sent you out here for.

Let's get down there.



Hyah! Hyah! Hyah!

Forward, ho!





Often afterwards in our days

on The Rock, it was easy to forget...

...why I'd ever chosen six rattle-headed

kids and an old man for the job we had.

Kip Waterson,

the baby-faced heir to a plantation.

Come back, you ninny.

Pierre Duchesne, from French Louisiana.

Pap Dennison, an old man really...

...but a hard, reckless fighter

who never gave ground while he lived.

Kay Rawlins,

from the Mississippi steamboats...

...a rough, unfriendly man,

as the Indians now found out.

Jimmy Wheat,

the little rednecked cropper...

...who could fight

like a wildcat with hydrophobia...

...but carried a useless little dog

2000 miles.

Jonas Weatherby, the Texan,

a seasoned plainsman at 18.

Plank, our other real plainsman,

hard and bitter...

...with chain-gang scars

on his legs at 22.

One moment they were all around us,

and we were drowning in Indians.

Then suddenly it was over with

and we had the desert to ourselves.

But I knew we had to get back to The Rock,

and quickly.


Nicked you, huh?

What kept you fellers?

Pierre, pick up those loose horses.

Rawlins, see to the driver.


Where you hit, mister?

Get the woman out.


Hey, he's right.

Packed with dang female women.

You might have known it.

I don't know what's wrong with her.

This ain't her blood.

Is anything busted anyplace, ma'am?

They're dead.

They're dead in there.

We never realized as we stared so

curiously at our unexpected guest... much history

might have been differently lived...

...if she'd not been there.

Are you all right, ma'am?

Yes, thank you.

I'm sorry I went to pieces so.

Oh, it was only natural, ma'am.
