Description: 

While chasing Grumby and his men, Bayard, Ringo and Uncle Buck come across a house the gang has burned "where the ashes were still smoking," and a "woman with a little thread of blood still running out of her mouth and her voice sounding light and far away like a locust from across the pasture" and a boy "still unconscious in the stable with his shirt cut to pieces like they had had a wire snapper on the whip" (163). Bayard later mentions that this was "in Alabama" (181). Alabama also figures in the story as the place where the pursuers are consistently (mis)directed to look for Grumby, first by Ab Snopes's wife and then by Matt Bowden.
