After bidding his cowhand friends goodbye, Lat, feeling melancholy, gets drunk and visits Callie.

Hundreds of names pass through my consciousness, names of people who gave selflessly of themselves to build the institution nestled here and who at one and the same time mined the priceless something the hills contain and returned to them still more of it. Plot[ edit ] Albert Gallatin "Lat" Evans Don Murrayan earnest young cowboy determined to better his situation, wins a job with a cattle drive by busting a wild horse. The most outsize presence is that of Mary Harris Jonesknown as Mother Jones, who spent more than two decades, off and on, agitating in West Virginia mine country.

It always intrigues me how nearly any specific condition of nearly any specific time can find some application in a book that, essentially, was handed down to us by word of mouth through century. The motif a Tiger — precious to their mother — reoccurs frequently. A in English from Gauhati UniversityAssam.
