I heard there was blue-grass and alfalfa here, but who 'd have thought it would look so nice?" "Do you want to see Mr. Williams?" "I guess it ain't necessary," and he sat up again, pressing a handful of grass upon each glowing cheek.
"Ay, that it would," a selector, from ten miles out, answered. "It's what we are all afraid of now. A bush fire with the country like it is would go over five hundred square miles, and there wouldn't be a selector nor a squatter for miles round with a yard of fence nor a blade of grass to call his own." "That's true," Marmot said. "And it's why I feel glad we held it.
So, taking everything out of his pockets, which was no small operation by the way, as Bob was a typical boy, he stripped himself of his heavier garments and hung them on tree limbs to dry. "Now if I could find something to eat I'd be right in it at least for a while," thought the castaway as he walked around on the warm grass.

The river led through sections of country now known as the Bad Lands, but we found an abundance of grass and an easy passage. Sponsilier held the lead all the way down the river, though I did most of the advance scouting, sometimes being as much as fifty miles in front of the herds.
