Biography: 

Referred to as "the Texas man" by the narrator, Buck carries "a ivory-handled pistol and a box of gingersnaps" in his back pocket (167). The day after he arrives at Mrs. Littlejohn's, he auctions off the wild ponies that he and Flem have brought back from Texas. At the end of that day he drives off on the buckboard wagon he swapped for the last two horses. Although he takes advantage of the men of Frenchman's Bend, he shows his sympathy for Mrs. Armstid by refusing to accept Henry Armstid’s bid.
