Sioux Moccasins

The valley of the North Platte had narrowed, with bluffs that several times came to the water’s edge and forced them, double-teaming, over hard climbs before they could get back to level going. Feed was better and the buffalo fatter, but they were troubled to come upon recent Indian kills and to see the tracks of moccasins; Sioux from the fact that they were pointed and shaped to fit right and left foot.
