Gil: There's one nice thing you can say about driving a herd up the Sedalia trail, if you're pressed to it. It don't make much difference if you're starting out from Texas at the one end or approaching Missouri at the other. The beeves will stay beeves. The drovers stay human. And trouble is always saddling up a fresh horse, preparing to ride with you. What you can't be sure of is the direction it's coming from, the face it's going to be wearing, the name it's going to be traveling under. What you can be sure of, it knows your name. Mine's Gil Favor, trailboss.
