A few weeks later, almost all Wyatt's men have left the convoy, frightened off by the discipline set by the wagon master. The women must then learn how to handle the horses and the mules, how to use rifles to defend themselves against the Indians. They will have also to cry the loss of those who will unfortunately die during the journey under the arrows of the Indians, drowned in their own wagon or because of the accidents which are meant to happen during such a dangerous expedition.
