Jessica didn't make any friends when she rode with Johnny into the cattle camp. She'd made her feelings about drovers plain. Which explains the reactions of the drovers when she gets captured by a band of renegade Indians:
“I say we just leave her there,” one of the drovers whose name Johnny didn’t know, piped up. “She only thinks we’re a pack of dusty, smelly cowhands anyway!” There were murmurs of agreement all round, and Johnny’s heart clenched. What would he do if the men wouldn’t help him rescue her? He couldn’t do it by himself …
“Yeah,” Frank agreed. “I say just leave her to the Indians. They’re welcome to her!”
It took all Johnny’s self-control not to walk over there and take Frank down, and his breath caught when Mr Jordan took a deep breath beside him, preparing to issue an order. Which way would Mr Jordan go? Would he rescue Jessica, or would he side with his men?
