“We jump off from Independence. Across the Big Blue River, the Little Blue, the Platte, theSweetwater. South pass over the Rockies down to the big Salt Lake, then the desert.It’s a long hard grind with no let-up. Rain, hail as big as eggs, breakdowns, prairie fires,sand storms. Dust storms, alkali water--no water. Cholera, Indians, drowning, stampedes,stupid accidents. You’ll pass graves everywhere. Milestones along the way. One out of every three of you will be dead before you get to his California Valley. So if you’re smartyou’ll leave by that door. That’s my best advice. Follow it, now. All right. You asked for it, you’ll get it.”-Buck Wyatt in
Westward the Women
