Excerpt: Chapter 1. THE Coming of a Native Son The Happy Family, waiting for the Sunday supper call, were grouped around the open door of the bunk?house, gossiping idly of things purely local, when the Old Man returned from the Stock Association at Helena; beside him on the buggy seat sat a stranger. The Old Man pulled up at the bunk?house, the stranger sprang out over the wheel with the agility which bespoke youthful muscles, and the Old Man introduced him with a quirk of the lips: ?This is Mr. Mig?u?ell Rapponi, boys ? a peeler straight from the Golden Gate. Throw out your war?bag and make yourself to home, Mig?u?ell; some of the boys'll show you where to bed down.? The Old Man drove on to the house with his own luggage, and Happy Jack followed to take charge of the team; but the remainder of the Happy Family unobtrusively took the measure of the foreign element. From his black?and?white horsehair hatband, with tassels that swept to the very edge of his gray hatbrim, to the crimson silk neckerchief draped over the pale blue bosom of his shirt; from the beautifully stamped leather cuffs, down to the exaggerated height of his tan boot?heels, their critical eyes swept in swift, appraising glances; and unanimous disapproval was the result. The Happy Family had themselves an eye to picturesque garb upon occasion, but this passed even Pink?s love of display.
