The Surrounded: Murder of the Game Warden
This haunting scene is eerily reminiscent of the Swan Valley Massacre of 1908.
The way he remembered the scene afterward, Louis was lying face upward with blood on his shirt front. He had been shot in the back of the head. The warden had plunged his face into the dirt and lay still. The old lady had covered her head again and was wailing for the dead. That was how he remembered it, and he could not explain how his mother had been able to move without being seen or heard. That was inexplicable. (127-28)
