The catch was one bull elk and one deer. After dark fires were built from dry wood. It was a still night filled only with the sounds of the mountains. Once wolves howled to the west. The fires burned down after midnight. At first light two men went over the trail to relieve the guards and others got up to prepare for another hunt. The camp was awakening. The booming of the rifles split the quiet without warning. The narrow canyon was filled with the deafening sounds of gunfire coming from the top of the northern ridge.
Riders following behind, unable to avoid collision, plunged headlong into the melee in front of them. Into the tangle of bodies eighty to a hundred yards away, the warriors sent a stream of bullets. They stood out in the open, facing the enemy. Galeana, Kezinne, and Nalgee carried repeating rifles, and they fired as fast as they could work the levers. When the magazines were empty, they raised their rifles and let loose the bone-chilling war cry of the Chokonen warriors. The bulk of the posse was galloping away, but among the dead or injured horses were five dead men and a few wounded ones, lying still or trying to crawl away.
The stones were slick. At the bottom I saw a man standing. She put the wounded boy down and pushed him over. The man, José Second, caught him and eased him to the ground; then she shoved me over. She followed, but because she was heavier both she and José Second fell to the ground. Carrying the wounded boy, he led the way to the cave where there were many women and children. The cavalry did follow the men, but they left a Negro sergeant and troopers to find the women. They rode to the spring to water their horses, saw and followed our tracks, and dragged us out.
