Heart's Desire

Excerpt from Heart's Desire It was the day before Christmas. Yet there was little winter in this sweet, thin air up on the Capitan divide. OS to the left the Patos Mountains showed patches of snow, and the top of Carrizo was yet whiter, and even a portion Of the highest peak of the Capi tans carried a blanket Of white; but all the lower levels were red - brown, calm, complete, unchanging, like the whole aspect of this far-away and finished country, whereto had come, long ago, many Span iards in search Of wealth and dreams; and more recently certain anglo-saxons, also dreaming, who sought in a stolen hiatus Of the continental con quest nothing of more value than a deep and sweet Oblivion. It was a Christmas-tide different enough from that of the States toward which Curly pointed. We looked eastward, looked again, turned back for one last look before we tightened the cinches and started down the winding trail which led through the foothills along the flank of the Patos Mountains, and so at last into the town of Heart's Desire.
