checks Ruth. Quatie runs to her aid.

TALMIDGE

Ruth's dead. Her whole family and

my uncle are dead!

Quatie puts her arm around him.

QUATIE

Let's get help, Talmidge. We've

must get to the top. With this mud,

we’ve got to keep moving.

Two people gather to help. The others stumble by in the background not realizing what happened.

TALMIDGE

The men in Washington caused this.

Quatie tries to comfort him.

QUATIE

I know, I guess our land is more

valuable than our lives.

Talmidge nods and stands. He goes to Ruth.

Five Cherokee men gather at the wagon. Another yells out.

CHEROKEE MAN

Grab the wagon, and heave.

The men raise the wagon. Talmidge pulls Ruth's crushed body out. Quatie puts her hand on Ruth's forehead as Talmidge picks her up in his arms. Quatie looks at the poor sight and speaks to herself.

QUATIE

You're better off.

Talmidge lays her on top of the canvas-covered supplies in the wagon. He looks at Quatie with tears in his eyes.

TALMIDGE

There are no blanket for her. I

hate the Ridge and his Washington

weasels.
